Larry Meiller inducted into Wisconsin Broadcasters Hall of Fame

Life Sciences Communication Professor Emeritus Larry Meiller will join a prestigious group of state voices in the Wisconsin Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Meiller hosts The Larry Meiller Show on Wisconsin Public Radio. The show is the longest-running call-in program in Wisconsin, and Meiller has more than 50 years of experience in the industry.

He earned his Ph.D. in Mass Communications from UW-Madison, and served for 40 years as a much-admired professor in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences; in 2007 he became an emeritus professor. As a broadcaster and a teacher, Meiller has mentored, inspired and served as an invaluable resource for thousands of college students in Wisconsin. Meiller continues to teach broadcast and radio classes and has received the Outstanding Advisor Award and the Excellence in Teaching Award from CALS, as well as an outstanding teaching award from the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity.

The Wisconsin Broadcasters Hall of Fame was created in 1989 to honor broadcasters that have devoted a minimum of 15 years to the broadcasting industry including a minimum of 10 years as a Wisconsin broadcaster. The award recognizes an individual’s history of exemplary leadership in community and statewide service as a broadcast professional.
