Welcome to the House of Broadcasting, Arizona's Radio & Television Museum Website!


Arizona Gives Day 2016
A much appreciated "thank you" to those who contributed on April 5th to House of Broadcasting - Arizona Gives Day program. To review, HOBI was housed at 7150 East 5th Avenue in Scottsdale for 10 years … We lost our lease when the building was sold and are searching for a new home.

Celebrity Toast UPDATE:
photos comming soon!

 

HOUSE OF BROADCASTING SEEKS A NEW HOME FOR COLLECTIONS
After 14 years in Scottsdale in the historic Gilbert Ortega two-story building - the building has been sold and the new owners have different plans for the top floor. Although we immeasurably enjoyed our almost two decades there we'd like a place where we can comfortably seat 50-60 people when we have an event at the Museum.

THE HOBI MUSEUM 18TH ANNIVERSARY
The House of Broadcasting (HOBI) is proudly celebrating its 18th Anniversary this year. It began in 1997, with the help of the Phoenix Chapter of American Women in Radio and Television and the Arizona Broadcasters Association. The Museum has prospered and grown, thanks to the support of television and radio stations, personal and industry contributions. HOBI is Arizona’s premiere radio and television home, dedicated to preserving and celebrating the history, personalities and paraphernalia of the electronic media. The Museum is a 501C3 non-profit organization.

Visitors come from across the state, the nation and the globe to enjoy the treasures that fill the gallery rooms of the Museum. They delight in the one of a kind photographs, awards, cameras, editing and lighting equipment. Special favorites are costuming and classical memorabilia from Buck Owens, early news attire from Mary Jo West, the Marty Robbins’, Frank Pollack, Karl Eller, Tom Chauncey and the Ira Lavin collections. Recent acquisitions from the late C. E. Pep Cooney, equipment and photographs from Red Harkins, and special items from other Arizona broadcasters, add to the excitement.




Fans of recently departed country music legend Buck Owens can sing his hit Act Naturally while viewing some of his memorabilia at the museum. On exhibit are his red, white and blue guitar and flashy red rhinestone suit. The one-time Arizona resident and former KNIX-FM 102.5 owner had ties to Scottsdale in 1987. Owens served as Parada del Sol grand marshall. These are the only items of Buck's outside of his museum in Bakersfield, California.


The Museum is supported by two annual events, the HOBI Celebrity Golf Tournament, which is held in September, and the HOBI Celebrity Toast. Special events and programs are featured at the Museum periodically, including book signings by broadcast veteran authors such as Hugh Downs, tributes to legendary broadcasters and live radio broadcasts on “Those were the Days” by Chicago radio host Chuck Schaden. Group tours are available by special arrangement and educational and community opportunities are encouraged.

House of Broadcasting Currently Looking for New Location
The House of Broadcasting Museum is temporarily closed. We are working to secure a permanent home and building for the Museum and it gems.
