Vernon Kay to host The Licensing Awards 2019

Light entertainment and game show host to take the helm on Tuesday September 10.

One of the UK’s most recognisable light entertainment and game show hosts, Vernon Kay is to take the helm of The Licensing Awards this year.

Vernon will host the industry’s big night which takes place at The Grosvenor House Hotel, London on Tuesday September 10.

First making his name as a host on Channel 4’s weekend magazine show, T4, Vernon has since presented on radio and TV with credits including Family Fortunes, Beat the Star and, in the US, Skating with the Stars.

He has also hosted Just the Two of Us with his wife, Tess Daly, while he has also appeared as a guest on a number of panel shows such as Would I Lie To You?, 8 Out of 10 Cats and Room 101.

A big NFL fan, Vernon has fronted TV coverage of the game and co-hosts a regular NFL podcast, as well as hosting live golf and boat race coverage.

He presented his own Radio 1 show for eight years, before making the move to commercial rivals Radio X.
