Minnesota legendary broadcaster wins award

Stanley E. Hubbard, a radio pioneer who created one of the most successful broadcasting companies in history, will be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame.

Hubbard, who passed away in 1992, put the Twin Cities on the map when he launched WAMD, airing the popular dance show "Where All Minneapolis Dances." He later went on to create what many believe is the first regularly scheduled daily news broadcast.

Other inductees include Charlie & Hannigan, Barry Farber, Jon Miller, Agnes Moorehead, Dick Orkin and "This American Life" with Ira Glass.

Ceremonies will be held Nov. 9 in Los Angeles.
