Al Michaels, Ron Howard, Bob Schieffer also set for March 11 event

A network chief, a sports stalwart and a veteran producer are among those to be inducted into this year’s class of the TV Academy Hall of Fame.

Entering the Hall are CBS Corp. chieftain Leslie Moonves as well as the Eye’s long-serving newsman Bob Schieffer, NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” lead announcer Al Michaels, “Law & Order” creator Dick Wolf as well as actor, producer and director Ron Howard. Inducted posthumously will be Philo T. Farnsworth, credited with inventing all-electronic television transmission.

Event will take place March 11 at the BevHilton and be produced by Phil Gurin. Proceeds from the gala will benefit the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation’s Archive of American Television.

Inductees were chosen by the Acad’s Hall of Fame selection committee, which is chaired by Warner Bros. TV president Peter Roth. Others on the committee are Marcy Carsey, Bonnie Hammer, Rick Rosen, Fred Silverman and Nina Tassler.

“Each of this year’s Hall of Fame inductees is incredibly deserving of this honor and is truly a legend of our industry,” said TV Academy chairman-CEO Bruce Rosenblum. “This will be a spectacular evening, rich with stories and reminiscing.”
