Music Week is delighted to announce that Jo Whiley is to host the Music Week Awards 2019.
The BBC Radio 2 DJ will take charge of proceedings at the biggest night in the music industry calendar. Whiley’s first time as host coincides with a new venue – Battersea Evolution – for the awards ceremony on May 9.
Whiley currently presents an evening show on Radio 2 from Monday to Thursday. She moved to the network in 2011, following 18 years on sister network Radio 1. Whiley has also been a regular presenter of BBC TV’s Glastonbury coverage.
A hugely popular broadcaster and long-term supporter of the music industry, Whiley will be presenting awards in 23 categories to leading executives, alongside our highly prestigious career award, The Strat.
