CHICAGO -- Ken "Hawk" Harrelson has been named as one of 10 finalists for the 2007 Ford C. Frick Award for Excellence in Broadcasting.

Harrelson received 6,795 fan votes through online voting, which was conducted throughout the month of November, placing him third out of a pool of nearly 200 radio and television broadcasters. As one of the top three vote-getters, Harrelson has earned an automatic spot on the final ballot along with Bill King and Joe Nuxhall. The remaining seven candidates were selected by a research committee. The winner of the Ford C. Frick Award will be announced on February 22, 2007 and will be honored during Hall of Fame Weekend, July 27-30, in Cooperstown, New York.

This is not the first time White Sox fans have effectively voted one of their favorites to the top of the polls. Past online voting successes include the "punch A.J." campaign which helped catcher A.J. Pierzynski land the final American League All-Star spot this past season, while a "Vote for Scott" initiative led to outfielder Scott Podsednik's All-Star selection in 2005.

If selected, Harrelson would be the fourth White Sox broadcaster to win the Ford C. Frick Award, along with Bob Elson in 1979, Jack Brickhouse in 1983 and Harry Caray in 1989.
