He will introduce the ceremony and 106 finalists before presenting the 22 awards for this year’s best in each category.
“I’ve made no secret on TV and radio that I love Lancashire and all it has to offer,” said Livesey (pictured). “I’ve spent my life on days out and holidays all over the place. I doubt there’s an acre of the county that I’ve not sat on in my shorts. Congratulations and best of luck to all the finalists.”
Ruth Connor, Chief Executive of Marketing Lancashire, added: “Tony is such a passionate advocate of Lancashire and though his career has taken him away from his beloved county from time to time, he has thankfully never stayed away for too long.
“We’re looking forward to hearing his favourite and most memorable experiences of a long and varied career in the media, and to sharing another unforgettable evening with over 500 of the most ardent and talented champions of Lancashire.”
