The former mayor of Providence, Buddy Cianci, is being inducted into Rhode Island’s Radio Hall of Fame. The talk show host for WPRO-AM told the station he got his start in radio when he was 7 or 8 as part of WJAR’s ‘‘kiddie review.’’ He started working full time for WHJJ-AM in the 1980s. Other inductees include Bill Corsair, who had a top-rated show on WICE-AM in the 1960s and 1970s and was the original voice of Hasbro’s talking G.I. Joe; and Mike Gonsalves, who was known as ‘‘Doctor Metal’’ for his heavy metal radio show at WHJY-FM. Gonsalves died in the Station nightclub fire in 2003. The official induction banquet is May 9 at Twin River in Lincoln.
