The Seven Network has announced that it has secured the rights to the TV Week Logie Awards in a multi-year agreement with TV Week publisher Are Media.
The new deal brings an end to the Nine Network‘s long run as host broadcaster. Nine had previously televised the awards annually between 1967 and 1980, then alternated between the other networks before becoming the exclusive broadcast partner from 1996 onwards.
In a statement issued earlier, 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 long-standing association with the awards and equally pleased to welcome the Seven Network as the Logies’ Official Broadcast Partner.”
The 63rd annual TV Week Logie Awards are to be held on Sunday 18 June 2023 at a venue to be announced.
