The ABC13 news team took top honors at the Lone Star Emmy Awards on Saturday night, and Eyewitness News anchor Dave Ward was honored for a lifetime of achievement in broadcast journalism.

Ward was inducted into the Silver Circle by the Lone Star Emmy Chapter.

The Silver Circle recognizes people with more than 25 year of experience in television.

Dave has been a member of the KTRK news team for 45 years, and has spent 43 of those years as the main anchor on Eyewitness News.

He has covered everything from interviewing presidents to the final shuttle launch.

It was also a big night for the entire ABC13 news team. We won several awards, including the highest honor of the evening for station excellence.
