Shazam! Al McCoy has been the voice of the Phoenix Suns since 1972, making him the longest tenured broadcaster in the NBA.

In honor of his talent and commitment to the media industry, McCoy has been selected by the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame as one of their newest inductees.

The induction ceremony is Sunday, February 13 at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix.

Due to the Suns’ home game that evening, against the Sacramento Kings, McCoy will miss the official ceremony.

However, a special induction ceremony will be held for him during the second timeout of the Suns game on Tuesday, February 15, when the Suns host the Jazz.

The Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame was created to recognize and honor exceptional people from all areas of media, music and fine arts in Arizona. Hall of Fame members are those whose creative talents and insight have entertained and influenced not only those living in Arizona, but across the nation and around the world.

This year’s newest inductees also includes Billy Williams, Chico Chism, Dick Van Dyke, Dolan Ellis, Goose Creek Symphony, Lee Hazlewood, Marshall Trimble, Sam Moore, Tanya Tucker, The Reed Family, and entertainment venue JD’s. Past Hall of Fame inductees include Alice Cooper, Steven Spielberg, Pat McMahon and Stevie Nicks.
