LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Broadcasters Association is welcoming three new members into the NBA Hall of Fame.

The three new inductees – Val Lane, Bill Kelly and Otis Twelve – were announced in a press release Wednesday. They will be honored August 8 in La Vista.

Lane has provided engineering support for more than 40 years across Nebraska, including with Flood Communications and News Channel Nebraska. Lane still travels the width and breadth of Nebraska upgrading, modifying, repairing, replacing and building for many Nebraska broadcasting companies. Prior to devoting his time to contract engineering, Lane assisted 1970’s studio recordings by Neil Diamond (“Love at the Greek”) and Bob Dylan (“Bob Dylan at Budokan”).

Kelly began his career in broadcast journalism in 1981 as a political and investigative reporter for WOWT before taking an interim producer’s role at KOLN/KGIN. He later joined the company eventually known as Nebraska Public Media, where he currently remains.

Twelve has been a constant voice in Omaha radio, starting as the host of “Midnight Mondo” on KQKQ in 1973. He is currently the morning classical music host at Omaha’s KVNO.

The new class brings the total number of NBA Hall of Fame inductees to 115 since it was established in 1972.
