β€œWe are so honored to receive this award on behalf of our father,” said Matt. “As long as we can remember, he was always so proud to be a part of Jeopardy, to work on a show that was based on knowledge, risk and challenged people to think. He loved every bit.”

Emily added: “Over the past 37 years, the show has become like a second family. He always went to work with enthusiasm, even during his battle with cancer. He was so lucky to be able to do what he loved, and we know that he has not once taken it for granted. On behalf of our family, we want to say a big thank you.”

All told, Trebek collected 32 Daytime Emmy nods in his career, including three for his work on Classic concentration. Larry King also won a posthumous Daytime Emmy Award at this year’s ceremony for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host for Larry King Nu. (View the full list of winners here.)

Trebek passed away last November of pancreatic cancer at age 80. He had hosted Danger! since the daily syndicated version debuted in 1984; its last episodes aired in January. Since then, the quiz show has rotated in a number of guest hosts, including: Danger! champion Ken Jennings, NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, CNN host Anderson Cooper and actress Mayim Bialik. However, a permanent replacement for Trebek has not yet been named.
