No one was more deserving of the Award of Excellence than the legendary Herb Kent. Known by many as the Cool Gent, Herbie Baby, the Mayor of Bronzeville or the King of Dusties….he belonged to all of Chicago but was indeed a Wildcat. As NUBAA President, I couldn’t be more proud of the mark Herb Kent left on this world and how proud he was to be one of us. If you saw him at last year’s NUBAA Summit and Salute to Excellence Gala, you know exactly what I mean. He was a trailblazer in the world of radio….
Special thank you to his loved ones, especially Linda Stafford for sharing memories with us. Enjoy the picture roll, and we trust Herb is already officiating the Battle of The Best within the Pearly Gates.
Enjoy this PowerPoint presentation of Herb Kent’s appearance at the 2016 NUBAA Summit and Salute to Excellence Gala. It was a night to remember.
