AM Awards | Evening Entertainment


2018 Host and comedian will be confirmed shortly.


The 2017 presenter was Steph McGovern

For over a decade Steph McGovern has reported on business and finance from around the world; from international summits to small business success stories. She is an established part of the BBC Breakfast team, covering business developments daily, and also regularly taking to the sofa as main co-host.

During the financial crash Steph was the lead producer of financial news, working with then Business Editor Robert Peston at the forefront of the award-winning coverage of the credit crunch and banking crisis. She soon began broadcasting herself, and Steph has presented on 5Live, Radio 4 and on the Chris Evans show on Radio 2.

Steph's Breakfast duties include meeting first-hand those on Britain’s business frontline. Speaking to factory workers and FTSE 100 CEOs, Steph’s mission is to uncover and explain what’s going on in the real economy.

The 2017 comedian was Rob Beckett

This year's AM Awards comedian Rob Beckett burst onto the comedy circuit only a few years ago winning four comedy competitions in his first year of stand-up.

Consistently impressive performances culminated in Rob finishing as a runner up in So You Think You're Funny and winning the Amused Moose Laugh Off. He performed at comedy festivals in Australia and was nominated for the Best Newcomer award in Adelaide.

Outside the realms of stand-up Rob is also an actor having recently starred in Channel 4's Fresh Meat. On tour he's supported Russell Kane and Stephen K Amos and his 2016 tour has now been extended into 2017 due to the phenomenal demand.
