The induction will take place during the NAB Show Television Luncheon on April 13 in Las Vegas.
"Shonda Rhimes' creative talent is undeniable and on display every Thursday night on ABC," said NAB Chief Executive Gordon Smith. "The characters and storylines she creates draw in viewers and keep them coming back for more. Her hit shows serve as Exhibit A on why broadcast television remains the most popular destination for scripted entertainment programming."
Previous hall of fame inductees include "Everybody Loves Raymond," "American Idol," Betty White, Garry Marshall, "Meet the Press," "Bob Newhart," "The Tonight Show", "Saturday Night Live", Ted Koppel and "Star Trek."
