As a way to say thanks for having to endure countless tales of fashion faux pas and celebrity chatter between Dorothy Lucey and Jillian Reynolds for decades on “Good Day L.A.,” Steve Edwards has been tapped to receive the L.A. Area Governors Award.
Edwards will have his statuette presented to him at the L.A. Area Emmys on July 31 at the TV Academy in North Hollywood.
He’s been host of KTTV’s Fox “Good Day L.A.” since 1995 but has been a Southern California TV fixture for many years before that. He appeared on “AM Los Angeles” on KABC/Channel 7 from 1984-91.
Edwards has also co-hosted shows such as “Entertainment Tonight” and KCBS’ “Two on the Town.”
Previous local Governors Award winners include other prominent names in local news, including Jess Marlow, Kelly Lange, Jerry Dunphy, Larry McCormick and Dr. George Fischbeck.
