Stern has been passed over four times but was chosen for induction this year. So far, according to Robert Feder's "Time Out Chicago" blog, there's no official word that Stern plans to attend. Feder reports Stern mentioned a letter of congratulations on his satellite radio show but hasn't responded.
Stern has mocked the Radio Hall of Fame in the past.
This year's event will take place at the New Museum of Broadcast Communications, 360 N. State Street beginning at 6 p.m.
You can listen to samples of all the inductees and read bios at radiohof.org.
