‘Tis the season for Australian Television’s night of nights – otherwise known as the 2023 TV WEEK Logie Awards – and there are a whole lot of exciting developments for this year’s ceremony
We’ll see the prestigious Australian TV awards head back home to Sydney and all of the action from the night will be broadcast on Network Seven.
Tune in from 7.00 pm to see some of the country’s biggest celebrities saunter down the red carpet at The Star Sydney, and watch the awards ceremony kick off from 7:30pm.
So that you don’t miss a second of the fun, here’s everything you need to know about the 2023 TV Week Logie Awards.
Who is hosting?
As well as a brand-new network and a return home to NSW, The TV WEEK Logie Awards are also bringing back a host for the first time in 11 years.
Sam Pang, best known for being a regular panellist on Network Ten’s weekly game show Have You Been Paying Attention?, will be in charge of presenting the ceremony.
“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,” Pang said in a statement.
“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.”
Who are the red-carpet hosts?
Over on the red carpet, TV superstars Dr Chris Brown and Sonia Kruger will be chatting with nominees and other attendees.
“I’d like to thank the Seven Network for this early Christmas present,” Kruger said of her role as a red-carpet host. “I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Chris Brown on the amuse-bouche to the main event, the main course if you will, with the very tasty Sam Pang.”
“Chris has such great, natural charisma and a brilliant sense of humour. With my brains and Chris’ beauty, this red-carpet show is going to be fresh, fun, unpredictable and bigger than ever. It will be one of the best nights ever for both the television industry and the viewers at home. I can’t wait.”
Brown, who recently signed a two-year deal with Network Seven, said he’s excited to be joining Kruger at the event.
“As far as I’m concerned, Sonia Kruger is the Logies. Naturally funny, fearless, flawless and a party animal. So while it may be a duty of care situation that they’ve paired her with a vet, I genuinely can’t wait to work with her on the red carpet show.”
“There’s a real excitement around the Logies being unpredictable this year. And nothing says unpredictable like putting a colour-blind guy like me on the red carpet.”
Kruger herself is a Gold Logie Nominee, so it’s likely we’ll see a host being interviewed by another red-carpet host!
