3 journalists join Nevada Press Association Hall of Fame

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Nevada Press Association has inducted three new members into its Hall of Fame — veteran Associated Press sportswriter Tim Dahlberg and longtime Las Vegas Review-Journal journalists Don Ham and Lisa Kim Bach.

The inductions were announced Saturday night at the association’s annual meeting and awards ceremony in Las Vegas.

Dahlberg covered crime and politics for the Review-Journal before he joined the AP’s Las Vegas bureau and in 2001 became one of only two national sports columnists for the wire service. He was voted into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame in 2016.

Ham retired two years ago after 43 years in journalism. He was the Nevada Appeal editor for more than a decade before he ran the Review-Journal’s city desk for 20 years.

Bach won many Nevada Press Association awards during her 27-year career. Her byline appeared in the RJ more than 2,000 times. She died from cancer in 2016.
