Longtime WCCO-TV sportcaster Mark Rosen and Twins TV broadcaster Dick Bremer are among the 2013 inductees of the Minnesota Broadcasting Hall of Fame, the Pioneer Press reports.

Rosen has been on WCCO for more than 40 years, while Bremer has been broadcasting the Twins or 30 seasons.

Other inductees named by the organization Tuesday include former KSTP-TV weatherman Barry Zevan; longtime broadcaster Kim Jeffries (whose real name is Kim Ketola); former Minneapolis Clear Channel marketing president Mick Anselmo (who is currently vice president and president of CBS Radio); and KRBI AM/FM's Bob Johnson, who has owned the station in St. Peter for the past 40 years.

Among those being inducted into the Broadcaster's Hall posthumously are Eleanor Mondale Poling, who last worked at WCCO Radio before her death in 2011; and Jack Thayer (WLOL, WTCN, WDGY to President of NBC Radio), who died in 1995.

This year's Distinguished Service Award is also being awarded posthumously to consulting engineer, Clifford J. Thomforde, "whose patience, skill, and charity kept many rural Minnesota radio stations on the air," the organization said.

The broadcasters will be honored at the Hall of Fame's annual induction ceremony on Sept. 29, which will be held at Seven Sushi Ultralounge and Skybar in Minneapolis.
