Longtime Hoosier broadcaster Ann Craig-Cinnamon will be inducted into the Indiana Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame In Indianapolis downtown October 24, 2019..
After beginning her radio career at the legendary Indianapolis station WIFE-AM, Ann Craig-Cinnamon quickly moved to WNAP-FM, becoming the first woman to be a major part of a radio morning show in Indianapolis when she joined the morning team in the late 1970s.
In the 1980s, she served as the News Director for Network Indiana, the statewide news-gathering and reporting radio network. In a broadcasting career that spanned nearly 30 years on radio and TV in Indianapolis, Ann would go on to make a name for herself as the host of successful radio morning shows on WZPL-FM, WENS-FM, WYJZ-FM and WHHH-FM.
In 1983, she was instrumental in putting WPDS-TV (now WXIN) on the air as one of its original reporters and serving as the station’s Public Affairs Director.
During her nine-year run as host of the morning show at WENS-FM, Ann lead the effort to raise money for Riley Hospital for Children through the annual 97-Hour Riley Radiothon. Those radiothons raised more than $2 million for the local hospital. Later, as the morning show host on Smooth Jazz 100.9 WYJZ-FM, she spearheaded a fundraiser for the New Life Home orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya.
Ann can currently be heard on RadioMom 91.1/91.5 FM occasionally delivering underwriting messages on air.
