Action News anchor Dale Yurong is celebrating 40 years with ABC30! For four decades, he has enjoyed telling the untold stories of the Valley.

Dale currently anchors "Action News Live at Four" and "Action News Live at 6:30." He's also the host of ABC30's shows "Dine and Dish" along with "Valley Grown."

The Edward R. Murrow-award-winning journalist has also earned an Emmy and has been named Associated Press Reporter of the Year.
