TV's night of nights is scheduled for August 18, 2024.

Sam Pang will return to host the TV WEEK Logie Awards in 2024 following the roaring success of his 2023 stint.

It was announced on June 16 that the comedian had nabbed the role once again, which will see him front Australian TV’s night of nights on Channel 7 come Sunday, August 18, 2024.

In a press release about the 64th TV WEEK Logie Awards, Sam said he’s “thrilled” to be trusted with the gig once again.

Sam Pang. Seven.

Hosting the Logies last year was an amazing experience and I’m thrilled to return in 2024,” he said.

“Adding to the excitement Seven have also given me the greenlight to try new things this year so I’m really looking forward to displaying my underappreciated and severely undeveloped song and dance skills.”

Sam Pang raked in Logies’ “biggest audience” in years

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Seven West Media, Jeff Howard, added that “Sam Pang brought unabashed showbiz back to the Logies last year”.

“He played a big part in the show drawing its biggest audience since 2017 and reaching more than 3.6 million on Channel 7 and 7plus,” he confessed.

“We are delighted Sam is returning in August to host this year’s celebration of everything television.”

The 2024 Logie Awards will feature a number of key changes

The 2024 Logie Awards will not only feature Sam Pang, but several key changes to award categories and the judging process.

This year, three awards will be presented as “Most Popular”.

Nominees in these categories will be decided by a panel of independant industry experts before going to a public vote.

These awards are the Gold Logie for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television, the Bert Newton Award for Most Popular Presenter and the Graham Kennedy Award for Most Popular New Talent.

The remaining 20 awards will be titled “Best” to combine the previous  “Most Popular” and “Most Outstanding” categories.

These will be determined by a combined score from a judging panel, viewing data and Australian public votes.

Watch the 64th TV WEEK Logie Awards on Channel 7 and 7plus on August 18, 2024.
