Tune in on Tuesday, Dec. 20 at 8 a.m. ET as Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation CEO Joel Peresman announces the inductees live on Feedback, the morning talk-show hosted by Nik Carter and Lori Majewski.

Fans can continue to cast their vote for the inductees through Thursday, Dec. 15 by going to rockhall.com. The top five artists voted by the public will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to determine the 2017 inductees.
SiriusXM will broadcast the induction ceremony, which takes place in April 2017 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Radio (Ch. 310). In addition to the live announcement of the 2017 inductees, there will be a special series of shows leading up to the induction ceremony as SiriusXM will feature special broadcasts throughout the year devoted to the Rock Hall’s inductees past and present.
