Veteran radio talk show host and CRN Digital Talk Radio personality Barry Farber will be honored with the Talkers Magazine Lifetime Achievement Award on June 7.
"I never tasted this kind of sweetness before and I wish I could share it with the whole world, beginning with Michael Harrison and his team at Talkers, Michael Horn, my boss at CRN; and Mark Masters, my boss at Talk Radio Network," said Farber, host of "The Barry Farber Show" on CRN and Talk Radio Network.
Farber will be presented the award by Michael Harrison, Talkers Magazine publisher, during the publication's New Media Seminar on June 7 at the Concierge Conference Center, 780 3rd Ave. in New York City. Talkers is a leading radio industry trade publication.
The longtime host was named by the magazine as one of the most important talk show hosts of all time in 2002 and 2010, having hosted radio talk shows since 1960 when his first program aired on WINS in New York, called "Barry Farber's WINS Open Mike." Farber would go on to host shows on a variety of stations such as WOR-AM, WMCA-AM, both in New York and many others before joining the ABC Radio Network and ultimately CRN and Talk Radio Network.
Farber is also an accomplished author with a number of published works such as "Making People Talk: You Can Turn Every Conversation into a Magic Moment," "How to Not Make the Same Mistake Once," and the upcoming "Cocktails with Molotov: An Odyssey of Unlikely Detours," set for release this summer from WND Books.
"The Barry Farber Show" airs weekdays from 5 to 6 p.m. Pacific Time on CRN and its affiliates.
CRN Digital Talk Radio offers more than 100 original shows along with a stellar roster of top syndicated programs hosted by radio veterans such as Barry Farber, Dennis Prager, Cindy Laverty, Dennis Miller, Mancow and Doug Stephan among others.
