ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A Rochester radio legend’s legacy will forever be cemented in the Museum of Broadcast Communications’ Radio Hall of Fame.

It was announced Tuesday that Brother Wease was among this year’s class of inductees in the Hall of Fame.

Wease, whose real name is Alan Levin, was nominated in July in the “Longstanding Local/Regional (20 years or more) category. He was one of four finalists, including John & Ken from KFI-AM Los Angeles, Melvin Lindsey from Washington, and Matt Siegel from KISS 108 Boston.

A panel of 600 radio industry professionals voted on the nominees. Inductees will be announced on August 16, with an induction ceremony to follow in October.

Wease currently hosts a show on 95.1 in Rochester.
