Nevada Broadcasters Hall of Fame:
The Nevada Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame was first created with the goal to bring added respect, honor and appreciation to the employees of our radio and television stations. The decision was made to honor employees who had worked in the broadcast industry for a minimum of twenty years. As we look back on the hundreds and hundreds of Nevada broadcasters who have already been inducted into the Hall of Fame, we realize that each person's story is part of a written history of broadcasting. These Hall of Famers each took different paths. They each in their own way, helped to shape Broadcasting in America. And they each shared a common passion, love, dedication and commitment. Each year we proudly continue telling the collective story of the Broadcaster. The Hall of Fame showcases excellence in broadcasting, with each name representing a very unique talent, a special skill and a journey taken. Finally, the NBA Hall of Fame has never been a competitive award, nor has it ever been a political award.
