John Gehron

From All Access this afternoon...

THE CONCLAVE, which celebrates 42 years of educating radio broadcasters this year, will present the 2017 ROCKWELL AWARD to ACCURADIO COO/Chairman JOHN GEHRON. GEHRON will receive The ROCKWELL AWARD during the SUMMER Learning Conference JULY 26-28 at the DOUBLETREE BY HILTON, MINNEAPOLIS – PARK PLACE. Since 1989, THE CONCLAVE has presented THE ROCKWELL AWARD – an annual lifetime achievement award – to an individual of unquestioned accomplishment.

I got a chance to interview John Gehron a few times over the years (including this one from 2009). I also worked for him when he was a CBS bigwig and with him on John Landecker's book (he was a wealth of information and photos). In a cutthroat business, John is a decent man, roundly respected by all. There's no one more deserving of an award like this.
