A favourite TV face visits the Sunshine Coast for the first time to host Awards
TELEVISION identity Larry Emdur began his career in media writing copy for the Sydney Morning Herald
before joining the Seven Network as the youngest newsreader on Australian television screens.
Larry is best known for his long-standing role as host of The Price Is right in the 1990s and his time hosting several other game shows.
He now co-hosts The Morning Show on Seven with Kylie Gillies and, although he has travelled the length of the country for work, his visit to the Sunshine Coast to host the prestigious Sunshine Coast Business Awards and the 25th anniversary Gala dinner will be the first time he has set foot in the region.
“I am very much looking forward to the opportunity to be a part of the Sunshine Coast’s longest running business awards program and to celebrating the many success stories you have fostered – I am very aware of the many, high profile people and businesses that have originated from the Coast and taken the world stage,” Mr Emdur said.
“Examples like Australia Zoo and HeliMods, all impressive in their own right and are in turn encouraging more businesses through sponsorship and mentoring.”
“It’s really an honour to be asked to join you on such an important evening of recognising leadership and teamwork,” he said.
The Sunshine Coast Business Awards is continuing to break records this year, for the number of nominations and submissions for awards across 16 categories and for the sheer size of the Gala Awards event to be held on Saturday at the Sunshine Coast Convention Centre at Twin Waters, which will seat more than 830 guests.
Chair of the Sunshine Coast Business Awards, Jennifer Swaine, said the most impressive aspect of the Awards program this year, however, is the range and calibre of the Finalists.
“It is shaping up to be a stellar night, our voluntary judges were floored by the talent, commitment, innovation and team focus demonstrated by every Finalist in this year’s Awards and I am very excited to see who wins in such a strong line-up of powerhouses,” Ms Swaine said.
