Radio Legend Stan Freberg Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award

June 29, 2007: Pioneering radio innovator, satirist and performer Stan Freberg has won the New York Festivals (NYF) 2007 Radio Broadcasting Lifetime Achievement Award.

With an illustrious career, Freberg broke into show business as a teen after winning an audition at the Warner Bros. cartoon studio to do voice-over work and later went on to provide the voices of Walt Disney characters including the Beaver in Lady and the Tramp. He came to prominence in radio broadcasting with The Stan Freberg Show on CBS Radio in 1957, meant as a summer stand-in for the long-running Jack Benny Show. A visionary program, Freberg used his humor to comment on all aspects of American society of the 1950s. The series ran for only 15 episodes due to the rising prominence of television, a medium he soon entered. Credited as the first person to inject humor into TV spots, Freberg founded his own advertising firm, Freberg, Ltd.* (but not very), where he and his wife Hunter still work today. In the 1990s he produced a daily commentary show titled Stan Freberg Here. In addition to the NYF Lifetime Achievement Award, Freberg has been honored many times throughout the years, culminating in a Grammy, numerous Emmys, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1995.
