B’casters induct ‘SNL’

NAB Hall of Fame fetes long-running show

LAS VEGAS — “Saturday Night Live,” the longest-running comedy show in the history of television, was inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame on Monday during a joint National Assn. of Broadcasters/TVB lunch at the org’s confab here.

Following a series of clips telescoping 25 years of skits and musical acts, current “SNL” cast member Darrell Hammond, appearing as President Clinton, introduced “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels, who accepted kudos via satellite feed from New York City.

Michaels joked, “As someone who has fought with NBC for years, I have two things to say: One, they often win, and, two, you are not the only one they haven’t paid.”

Former cast member Garrett Morris called “SNL” an “epiphanous experience. It changed my life.” Other “SNL” alums accepting awards in Las Vegas were Nora Dunn, Tom Davis and Joe Piscopo.
