Baseball broadcaster Bob Uecker will be inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame at the 2012 NAB Show in Las Vegas.

Uecker has more than four decades of baseball broadcasting experience, concentrated with the Milwaukee Brewers and their radio network for the last 30 years. He has national network baseball broadcasting experience as well with ABC and NBC. He has made movie appearances and had a lead role in the sitcom, “Mr. Belvedere,” along with other TV shows and a series of Miller Lite beer commercials.

A former player, Uecker’s self-deprecating humor has made him famous not only among baseball fans but recognized by nonfans. NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David called him “a cultural icon whose remarkable talent and love for baseball have touched generations of fans.”

Uecker has been inducted into the NAB Radio Hall of Fame. He’s a Ford C. Frick Award (Baseball Hall of Fame broadcast award) winner along with being a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Uecker will be inducted at the NAB Show Radio Luncheon, April 17.
