TV Week Logie Awards on Channel 7 to be hosted by Sam Pang – Channel Seven today announced comedian Sam Pang will host this year’s TV WEEK Logie Awards on Sunday 30 July at The Star Sydney.
Pang will be the first host of the TV WEEK Logie Awards in 11 years, joining an illustrious list of entertainment giants including Graham Kennedy, Bert Newton, Don Lane, Andrew Denton and Shaun Micallef in the role. This is one of many changes being introduced in 2023 under Seven’s reimagining of the Logies.
Currently Sam is the co-host of The Front Bar, with Mick Molloy and Andy Maher, and a star of Have You Been Paying Attention? alongside Ed Kavalee and host Tom Gleisner since 2013.
Sam Pang said
“It’s a huge honour to be asked to host the Logies and while it will be weird not having a buzzer or beer in front of me, hopefully I’m up to the challenge. I feel very lucky to be a part of this industry and can’t wait for July 30 in Sydney to celebrate Australian television on its night of nights and guide viewers at home through the entire four hour broadcast.”
Seven Network’s Chief Content Officer: Entertainment Programming, Angus Ross, said
“Sam was on standby to accept an award for Kitty Flanagan at last year’s Logies and found himself up on stage and stole the entire show with his wry and witty asides. We are thrilled audiences will get even more of Sam Pang on Seven as he steers the ship across the whole night with his genuine affection for the industry, past and present, alongside his trademark humour.”
For the past seven years the television presenter, writer and producer was co-host on the much-loved Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny.
Pang was also a fan favourite covering the Eurovision Song Contest alongside Julia Zemiro from 2009 to 2016.
The 63rd TV WEEK Logie Nominations will be announced tomorrow morning at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney at 7.00am.
Australia’s #1 total TV network will usher in a new era for TV’s most prestigious and glamourous celebration as the proud new home of the 63rd TV WEEK Logie Awards, broadcast exclusively on Channel Seven and 7Plus on Sunday 30 July from 7.00pm.
