This celebration, which was presented by the International Radio and Television Society Foundation, benefits the Library of American Broadcasting Foundation--a charity dedicated to preserving the past, reflecting the present, and informing the future.



Joyner, a trailblazer in syndicated radio, reaches 7.4 million listeners weekly on nearly 100 radio stations.  He earned the moniker “The Fly Jock” in the mid-1980s flying between Dallas and Chicago, doing his number one morning drive program in Dallas and then commuting to Chicago for his number one afternoon program. In 1994, The Tom Joyner Morning Show became a syndicated radio mainstay where Joyner uses his voice to encourage voter registration, health initiatives and education while entertaining, engaging and empowering his listeners.

The Library created the Giants to honor the remarkable creators, innovators, entrepreneurs, performers and journalists who have brought the electronic arts to the prominence they occupy in the United States and the world today, and who have set the stage for the future. 

The 2016 Honorees join 191 GIANTS OF BROADCASTING who have been honored by the Library since 2003.
