Grimmers launches Radio 1's Teen Awards
BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw this morning announced that Radio 1’s Teen Awards will return this October to celebrate the achievements of inspirational teenagers.
The annual event, now in its fifth year, will take place at London’s Wembley Arena on Sunday 19th October to honour the UK’s unsung teenage heroes as well as the year’s best music, online, sport and entertainment stars.
Nick Grimshaw will return to host the event in 2014. Further details of the ceremony, including the artist line-up due to perform at the event will be announced over the coming months.
Nick Grimshaw said: “The Teen Awards are one of my highlights of the year here at Radio 1. The crowd are always so up for it and the sheer noise of screams is out of control! I love the fact we honour teen heroes as well as pop stars. I can’t wait.”
Radio 1 and 1Xtra Controller, Ben Cooper said: “I want Radio 1 to celebrate and reflect the great work young people do in the UK and their positive contribution to society.”
