KSBJ/Houston air personality Mike Cannon has been inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame .
Mike told HisAir today, “Using the gifts God gave me for Him is the icing on the cake of my radio career. Being on the air has always been a blast, but answering the phone and talking a distraught listener out of suicide or leading them to The Lord is way better.
