Betty White to get Daytime Emmy lifetime achievement award

NEW YORK (AP) – Show-biz sweetheart Betty White is about to get another dose of love, this time from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

The 93-year-old will be honored with this year’s lifetime achievement award next month at the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the 1960s, White was a frequent contestant on “Password,” where she met and subsequently wed its host, Allen Ludden. She also appeared on “The Match Game” and “The $25,000 Pyramid.”

She was the first woman to receive an Emmy Award for outstanding game-show host for the show “Just Men.” And she had a recurring role on “The Bold and the Beautiful” from 2006 to 2009.

Previous honorees include Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters and Regis Philbin.

The Daytime Emmys will air April 26 on the Pop network.
