The Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame is inducting 16 honorees into its 2013 group, including Tommy Jett of Chattanooga.

The ceremony, set for May 4 in Nashville, will induct seven broadcasters in the Career category and nine in the Legacy category.

Jett - whose full name is Tommy Jett Reynolds - is one of the original "Jet-Fli" guys on Chattanooga's 50,000-watt WFLI-AM. In his 50 years in radio, he has hosted country and oldies shows on several stations.

Coyote McCloud, who worked at Chattanooga's WGOW-AM as Bill Scott before changing his name at WQXI-AM in Atlanta, is being inducted in the Legacy category.

Also being inducted in the Legacy category is Allen Dennis, who spent time at WDXB, WRIP and WGOW in Chattanooga.
