In a major TV world shake up, the Seven Network has announced it has signed a multi-year agreement with Are Media to become the Official Broadcast Partner of the TV WEEK Logies.
The awards have been broadcast on Nine for the last 27 years, and have been a consistent ratings performer. Earlier this year, The Logies had 885,000 viewers tune in for the ceremony, while 826,000 watched the red carpet arrivals. This number was up on the last time the Logies were held in 2019, where 799,000 watched the arrivals and 866,000 watched the ceremony.
The night ended with Hamish Blake winning his second gold Logie, Blake commented after the win that it was “The first Gold Logie in five years not to be decided by Tom Gleeson.”
The 63rd TV WEEK Logie Awards will be broadcast on Channel Seven and 7plus on Sunday, 18 June next year. The location for the awards will be announced later this year.
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 Seven 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.”
