About Us

Who We Are …

The mission of The Museum of Broadcast Communications (MBC) is to collect, preserve, and present

historic and contemporary radio and television content as well as educate, inform, and entertain the

public through its archives, public programs, screenings, exhibits, publications, and online access to its

resources. The MBC is an Illinois non-profit corporation that owns and manages two subsidiaries,

museum.tv and the National Radio Hall of Fame (NRHOF) and its website radiohof.org.

The Museum of Broadcast Communications is one of only three museums dedicated to broadcast

history in the nation. MBC is home to America s only National Radio Hall of Fame Gallery. Our 62,000

square foot facility is located at 360 North State Street (at Kinzie) next door to Harry Caray s Italian

Steakhouse and Hotel Chicago. This large space allows the Museum to expand its collections and serve

a wide range of audiences.

The new MBC includes...     A two-story, glass and steel lobby atrium     Oprah’s Door through which she made her famous grand entrance each day     WGN’s Family Classics set     Penthouse with garden terrace for private events of up to 700 guests     183 inductee posters in the only National Radio Hall of Fame Gallery     The original Charlie McCarthy, Mortimer Snerd, and Effie Klinker     Scores of radio memorabilia and vintage radios     Working radio and television studios This expanded facility enables the Museum to accommodate an increased number of school groups and extend its educational outreach. The new MBC facility provides a wide range of educational spaces that are critical to the Museum s mission as well as a spectacular special events venue for weddings, private parties, and receptions.
America’s only National Radio Hall of Fame 183 Radio Hall of Fame inductees are honored. A large-screen presentation area (provided by LG) examines broadcasting s impact on society with Radio Hall of Famers, visiting authors, industry pioneers, and scholars. The Hall of Fame has scores of historic artifacts. It is the perfect place for very special birthdays, milestone anniversaries, and class reunions.
