Comedian and philanthropist Jerry Lewis will receive the NAB Distinguished Service Award (DSA) at this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas, during its opening keynote.

The two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee began the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Labor Day telethon, TV’s top-grossing fundraising program. He also raised $2 billion for the organization during his tenure as its national chairman.

Lewis joins the ranks of former DSA winners that include Mary Tyler Moore, Edward R. Murrow and Oprah Winfrey.
