Nominees for the OAB Hall of Fame must have an Oklahoma background by birth, residence, or employment. They must be at least 35 years old, and must have worked in the broadcast industry or a related field.
Representatives of OAB member stations or the general public may submit nominations for these awards. Final selection for the award is at the discretion of the OAB Board of Directors. Submission of a nomination application is merely an application for consideration and does not assure the nominee of recognition by the OAB. Nominations will be valid for three years after submission.
