In or around 1936, when the election process was set up for Hall of Fame voting, broadcasting was just starting out while print was well established. That being said, it only made sense that voting be monopolized by the writers. And I don't fault that reasoning.
In today's environment, though, it seems that the whole Hall of Fame process could stand a rather drastic overhaul. This is my solution.
1. All voters must have at least 10 years experience covering major league baseball.
2. Writers vote for writers only.
3. Broadcasters vote for broadcasters only.
4. Major league players vote for players only.
5. Current Hall of Fame honorees may vote for any eligible candidate, including other categories such as managers, owners, executives, etc.
There would be some other qualifying criteria, such as a baseball writer must have written for a publication which regularly covers major league/professional sports. This would eliminate someone working for a local weekly paper only as being considered an HoF candidate. A similar restriction would be in place for broadcasters.
As a final word, I would also like to see coaches considered for election.
