TV and radio presenter to host GBCC awards 2024
The Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce have announced that Noreen Khan, award-winning TV host and Radio Presenter, will be the host for Birmingham’s biggest business awards, the GBCC awards 2024.
Noreen (pictured) has presented some of the most well-known TV shows in the UK, including: Back in Time for Birmingham, Countdown, Sport Relief, Co-hosted the Edgbaston T20 cricket tournament and has appeared on Celebrity Mastermind, Celebrity Antiques Road Show and Fighting Talk (BBC Radio 5 Live). In recognition of her talent in on the microphone, Noreen won the Radio Presenter of the Year, Asian Media Awards in 2021. She was also chosen to co-host the opening ceremony of the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
With a love of being in front of the camera and entertaining people and wanting to focus more on comedy, Noreen stepped down from radio presenting in 2023 and stepped up onto the stage. Her first experience of stand-up comedy was in around 2016 at the Glee Club in Birmingham for a Desi Central Night.
Her show ‘Lol (Ladies of Laughter) with Noreen Khan’ was immensely successful in 2019, and a second tour was announced for 2020, which had equal success. Noreen toured all over the UK creating laughs and memories for all who came to the show. Most recently, Noreen was chosen to take part in the Asian Network Comedy E14, held in Birmingham, 2022.
Noreen was also recently awarded the Asian Business Chambers of Commerce President’s Award. The President’s Award is given to an individual who has given outstanding contribution or sacrifice for the betterment of society.
The award was handed over to Noreen by president Omar Rashid during the ABCC Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony held last Saturday at the National Conference Centre, Solihull.
Speaking on hosting the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce awards 2024, Noreen said: “I’m thoroughly looking forward to hosting the region’s biggest celebration of businesses, the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce Awards night! It’ll be fantastic to see many organisations vying for glory at the GBCC annual dinner and awards and it’s a real honour for me to be hosting it.”
The annual dinner and awards will take place at the ICC Birmingham on Thursday 15 February. Find out more information about the GBCC annual dinner and awards 2024, including tickets and sponsorship opportunities.
