If you've watched WTAP News at any time since the early 80's, then you're likely pretty familiar with Todd Baucher.
Saturday in Charlottesville members of The Virginias Associated Press Broadcasters presented Todd with a lifetime achievement award, commemorating three decades of service to the Mid-Ohio Valley.
Todd is an Ohio University graduate.
He started at WTAP in 1980.
Six years later he covered the West Virginia State Penitentiary riots and in 1994 was on the scene again for that deadly explosion at the Shell chemical plant in Belpre.
The journalists of WTAP News won three other awards Saturday.
