Jason Manford to front Mobile News Awards


Comedian Jason Manford booked to present Mobile News Awards 2011 at London Park Lane Hilton in March

Top comedian, actor, and former co-host of BBC’s The One Show Jason Manford has been booked to present the Mobile News Awards 2011, which takes place at The Hilton on Park Lane on March 17.

Manford is embarking on a major national UK tour next year and already several venues have sold out of tickets. “It was always going to be a challenge to find an act big enough to follow Michael McIntyre who presented the 2010 Mobile News Awards. We were chuffed when Jason said he would do it,” said Mobile News editorial director Ian White.

“Well, we did give him his big break when he hosted the What Mobile Awards at Jongleurs in 2007. His fee was slightly less in those days”.

Tables for the Mobile News Awards can be booked by visiting the event website (mobilenewsawards.co.uk). Awards entries are also being accepted until the February 17 deadline. Entry forms can be downloaded from the website. See page 26 for table packages available.
