A LOUDMOUTH television and radio presenter will be paying a visit to Wearmouth to host an awards ceremony.
Terry Christian, will be the compere at this year’s Sun FM Style Awards, which take place on September 26 at Sunderland’s Best Western Roker Hotel.
And there’s still time to nominate favourite people, businesses and places to give them the opportunity of taking the honours on the night.
Categories include the Icon Award, The Most Stylish Home and the Up and Coming Business Awards.
Terry, who shot to fame presenting anarchic youth television show The Word in the 1990s, said: “The Style awards are a great way of recognising everything that one city has going on.
“I love working on radio, so this is a great experience for me. I’m really looking forward to it.”
Among Terry’s most memorable moments on The Word were having to ask questions of a drunken Oliver Reed and dealing with the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, who was smuggled out of prison for the interview. The awards ceremony, which will be hosted by Sun FM’s Simon Grundy and Danielle Moore, will include a DJ set from Stacie Stewart and a fashion show to launch the evening.
Julian Carter, managing director of Sun FM, said: “These awards are a great opportunity for Sunderland to show the rest of the region what we have to offer.
“They give us the chance to reward individuals, businesses, experiences and places in Sunderland that wouldn’t normally be recognised.
“The Style awards are always very popular and this year is no exception, with new categories and the backing of so many businesses the night is bound to be one to remember.”
Tickets are £39 and will be available soon from the Sun FM reception in Sunderland Enterprise Park or by calling 548 1034. For more information, to vote or to nominate visit www.sun-fm.com/style-awards-2014.php.
