NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman will be inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame.

Bettman was one of 11 professionals from across the industry named to the 2018 induction class, which was announced Thursday. They will be honored at a ceremony at the New York Hilton Hotel in Manhattan on Dec. 11.

"This year's class continues our strong tradition of honoring those in our industry who have made a difference both in front of and behind the camera and even in the executive board rooms," said Ken Aagaard, Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame chairman.

The Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame induction will come a month after Bettman is inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Nov. 12.

Among those joining Bettman in the 2018 class are tennis commentator Mary Carillo, longtime NBC Sports broadcaster Bob Costas, sports documentarian Bud Greenspan, veteran broadcaster Jim Nantz and ESPN college basketball announcer Dick Vitale.
