LOS ANGELES, April 2 (UPI) -- Bill Geddie, executive producer of "The View," will be given a lifetime achievement award at the 39th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

The honor recognizing Geddie's 30-year career was announced Monday on "The View" by co-host Barbara Walters.

The Daytime Emmy Awards gala will take place June 23 at the Beverly Hilton.

"Bill Geddie is an icon in the television industry," Malachy Wienges, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, said in a statement. "When he and Barbara Walters created 'The View' 15 years ago, they introduced a new and innovative daytime television talk show format. We at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences are proud to have Bill receive our 2012 Daytime Lifetime Achievement Award."

Geddie has also partnered with Walters for the past 25 years as the executive producer of "The Barbara Walters Specials" and "The 10 Most Fascinating People" programs, which he also co-writes and directs, and Walters anchors.
