It Looks Like The Logies Have A New Home And We Know Where!
The Gold Coast looks set to be confirmed as the new home of the Logie Awards, with TV Week editor Emma Nolan heading to Queensland today to front a media conference with Gold Coast mayor Tom Tate and Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.
TV Week is the presenter and organiser of the television industry awards and the method through which votes are received for entrants.
Tate told the media earlier in the week that he was working very hard with Queensland's Tourism Minister Kate Jones to assess the viability of hosting the TV Week Logies on the Gold Coast.
It was announced earlier in the week that after 20 years, the awards would not be held in Melbourne anymore, with the Victorian Government pulling its $1 million funding.
New South Wales tourism minister Adam Marshall had previously expressed interest in hosting the show in regional towns like Dubbo or Albury instead of metropolitan cities, but it looks like that won’t be happening.
