A five-year deal has been signed with the Seven Network for the 63rd TV Week Logie Awards.
This will be the first time since 1995 that Seven will serve as host broadcaster, previously held by the Nine Network.
Peter Ford, entertainment reporter for Seven’s Sunrise, announced the news this morning.
Australian television’s “night of nights” will be broadcast on Channel 7 and 7plus, and, although a location has not been confirmed, the event is set for June 18.
Seven West Media managing director and chief executive officer, James Warburton, said: “The TV WEEK Logie Awards are more than television’s night of nights; they are a treasured Australian institution and a celebration of Australia’s love of television.
“We are honoured to be partnering with Are Media to bring the Logies to Australia on Channel 7 and 7plus. It’s early days but we have big, exciting plans for the awards in 2023 and beyond.”
Are Media chief executive officer, Jane Huxley, said: “The TV WEEK Logie Awards has become the most anticipated event of the year for the television industry as we celebrate the most popular stars and shows on our screens. We are delighted to continue our longstanding association with the awards and equally pleased to welcome the Seven Network as the Logies’ Official Broadcast Partner.”
The Logies have aired previously on Nine (most recently, and the longest run), ABC, the Seven Network and Network Ten.
