The Hall of Fame said Tuesday that Cheek received 11,661 votes, King 4,758 and Doucet 2,714.

They join seven broadcasters selected by a Hall of Fame research committee: Rene Cardenas, Dizzy Dean, Ned Martin, Tim McCarver, Graham McNamee, Eric Nadel and Dave Van Horne.

Fifteen living Frick Award winners and five historian/columnists will vote. The winner will be announced Dec. 7 during the winter meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., and he will be honored during the Hall inductions in July.
