“I’ve been involved in a lot of “firsts” in my thirty-four plus years as a radio and television host but this “first” is special to me because it’s the industry I know the best” says Things Green host, Nick Federoff. “As an inductee myself it’s a badge I proudly carry and am honored to be part of such an esteemed group being inducted this year in spite of the troubling times we have experienced this year – let’s celebrate!” He continues, “Plus cutting edge technology allows us to stream the show online through several platforms at the same time it airs on TV so everyone can watch.
