Len Berman, Scott Shannon, and Mike Wallace Among the NYSBA 2012 Hall of Famers

The New York State Broadcasters Association has revealed its Class of 2012 Hall of Fame inductees. The NYSBA honors on-air radio and TV talent from across the state.

This year, the NYSBA adds six people for enshrinement.

Mike Wallace is being inducted posthumously. The iconic “in your face” 60 Minutes reporter started full-time at CBS in 1960. He was a charter member of TV’s longest running newsmagazine when it debuted in 1968.

Wallace took home 21 Emmy Awards. He died in April at the age of 93.

Len Berman was a popular sportscaster, known primarily for 24 years at WNBC/Channel 4, before leaving in 2009. Berman also had a stint at WCBS/Channel 2 earlier in his career. An eight-time Emmy winner, Berman covered virtually all major sporting events, especially those involving the New York teams. Since leaving WNBC, Berman has maintained his monthly blooper segment, Spanning the World, on the Today Show.

“I am deeply honored to be chosen to be inducted into the NYSBA Hall of Fame with some of my broadcast heroes like Walter Cronkite and Mike Wallace,” Berman tells FishbowlNY. ”And to be one of the few sportscasters in the Hall makes it doubly special.”

Berman has written four books, and has resurfaced on local TV with a weekly segment on WNYW/Channel 5.
