Introduction Barry Michaels, American Radio Personality. Country Music Association (CMA) and Billboard Magazine recognized broadcaster. Winner of ADDY awards for excellence in commercial voice work, two recently. Barry was asked to moderate a panel, with other radio notables, entitled 'Morning Show Boot Camp' at the Country Radio Seminar (CRS) in Nashville, TN. While in Orlando, Florida, the 'Michaels in the Morning Show' was selected by Disney Company officials to broadcast from Walt Disney World. This was the first of it's kind at the Disney location. Barry's performance so impressed Disney brass, that he was asked to return for the first ever live broadcast in 1982 at the opening of Epcot Center. Barry's work in radio has primarily been in 'morning drive', having hosted successful shows across the country in such cities as Houston, Dallas, Miami, Phoenix, Baltimore, Sacramento, and for five years was heard as an international personality for the ABC Radio Networks, at the same time being simulcast on the Armed Forces Network. Barry is well versed in all formats and is a proud member of The Texas Radio Hall of Fame. Barry is still on morning radio in Florida.
