Golden Girls legend Betty White is the latest star to enter the National Association of Broadcasters' Hall of Fame.

The veteran actress was inducted into the prestigious institution at a special ceremony in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

White was selected for the honor in recognition of her lengthy career, her seven Emmy Awards and her numerous TV and film roles.

NAB President-CEO Gordon Smith says, "Betty White is admired by generations of audiences. She has remarkable energy and an incredible ability to connect with viewers. Betty's contributions to television and entertainment as a whole are extraordinary. Our Hall of Fame would be incomplete without her."

After the induction, White told talk show host Piers Morgan, "I was inducted into their Hall of Fame, it was a big thrill. It's amazing, it was interesting."

White joins Regis Philbin, Jerry Lewis, Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball and The Simpsons creator Matt Groening in the NAB Hall of Fame.
