Richard M. Fairbanks
Hall of Fame

1981 marked the establishment of the Indiana Broadcast Hall of Fame which recognizes those individuals who have been directly or indirectly associated with broadcasting in the state of Indiana, and who have made a significant contribution to the industry.

Thanks to the generous contribution from the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation, the Indiana Broadcast Hall of Fame and the broadcast exhibit in the Indiana State Museum was refurbished and updated in 2006. In recognition of this gift, the Indiana Broadcast Hall of Fame is now The Richard M. Fairbanks Indiana Broadcast Hall of Fame.
