Ken Bruce joins Hall of Fame

BBC Radio 2's Ken Bruce received a welcome surprise yesterday whilst hosting the PRS Radio Academy Hall of Fame Lunch, as he became one of the latest radio presenters to be inducted.

The Hall of Fame celebrates and honours legendary voices who have made an outstanding contribution to the UK radio industry and to British cultural life.

Academy chairman and GMG Radio CEO John Myers handed over the award to Ken Bruce, as Simon Bates, Jim Naughtie and Emperor Rosko were also welcomed to the club. Annie Nightingale received the PRS John Peel Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music Radio.

Ken Bruce started his radio career at Hospital Radio in Glasgow before joining Radio Scotland as an announcer. He then went on to host the afternoon show at the station and moved on to the BBC World Service in the 1980s. He joined Radio 2 in 1984, and had a brief spell on breakfast in 1985 and started his current slot in 1992.
