WKYC-TV Channel 3 investigative reporter Tom Meyer was honored Thursday with the "Excellence in Television Award" by the Cleveland Association of Broadcasters for his four decades of covering and uncovering the city.

Meyer was recognized along with radio legend Dan Deely of 107.3 The Wave and long-time promoter Barry Gabel of Live Nation.

Doug Adair, the popular former news anchor at WKYC, and shock jock radio talk show host Gary Dee received the President's Award for their life-time contributions.

The CAB awards were held during a luncheon at Windows on the River. Guests included Meyer's wife of 39 years, Sandra, and their daughter, Meagan.

Meyer, known at The Investigator, has won more than 180 local, state, regional and national awards, including the Regional Edward R. Murrow Award, the Press Club's National Headliner Award and a national UPI award. 

He has the distinction of winning 62 Emmys - more Emmys than any other reporter in Northeast Ohio.
