ATLANTA — The late soul legend James Brown has been inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that Brown’s daughter, Deanna Brown Thomas, accepted the honor for him at an awards ceremony on Saturday in Atlanta.

Brown died in December 2006 at age 73. He purchased WRDW-AM in Augusta, Ga., in the late 1960s, where he had shined shoes as a boy. He also operated or owned radio stations in Atlanta, Baltimore and Knoxville, Tenn.

The “Godfather of Soul” was among several honorees to receive their award posthumously. Other awardees include Ernie Harwell, the legendary voice of the Detroit Tigers who died last year and Ben Porter, a Macon radio station owner who got his radio start in south Georgia as “Jack the Bellboy” and also died in 2010.

The Georgia Hall of Fame was established in 2007.
