Terry Gross, the almighty leader of the WHYY-based Fresh Air, will be inducted in to the 2012 class of the Chicago-based Radio Hall of Fame. Joining Gross are Gary Burbank, Ron Chapman, Art Laboe, Luther Masingill, Jack Cooper and Howard Stern. Radio powerhouse Stern has spoken out against the HoF in previous years and has been rejected on four past ballots, according to Time Out Chicago.

I still find it a privilege to be able to talk to and engage in a pretty personal level with people whose work I respect," Gross told the Daily News' Dan Gross (no relation ... that we know of).

Gross will officially join the Hall during the nationally-broadcast ceremony on November 10.
