I heard a woman said in a news program honor be here. I might misheard it but that is why I want to check it here.

Question: can to be omitted in such phrases like, honor to be here, nice to meet you, and etc.


No, to cannot be dropped there, not unless the phrase is nice being here or nice meeting you.

The choice is between the two non-finite clauses, infinitival or participial:

to be ...

being ...
