LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Broadcasters Association has inducted two people into the organization’s Hall of Fame.
Rod Bates, now retired from his duties as general manager of Nebraska Educational Telecommunications, and longtime broadcast executive Lynne Grasz-Hall were honored at the association’s annual convention earlier this month.
Bates joined NET as a producer/director in 1975, served in state government from 1983 to 1987 and ran his own video firm from 1988 until 1996, when he returned to NET as general manager.
Grasz-Hall began her career as one of only five students in the first broadcast journalism class at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She joined KOLN/KGIN television in Lincoln in 1964 as an intern and became promotion director in 1966. Her career took her to St. Louis in 1977 and eventually to New York.
