‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?” star and comedic actor Wayne Brady has been chosen to host the 2014 BET Honors. The two-hour program, which has been a steady gig for Being Mary Jane star Gabrielle Union, will tape on February 8 and then air on February 24 at 9 p.m. EST, in honor of Black History Month.
“We are excited to have Wayne Brady host BET HONORS this year. He made the most of his moment on the show last year and we knew pretty much immediately after that he was the multi-hyphenate talent we wanted leading this year’s festivities,” said Stephen Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials for BET Networks. “Wayne will dazzle and amaze and we can’t wait.”
The BET Honors is the network’s most prestigious award show and recognizes distinguished African-Americans performing at exceptional levels in music, literature, entertainment, media, service and education.
If you recall, Brady was part of last year’s telecast and had the audience rolling with his unique humor. The versatile entertainer is humbled that BET has chosen him to come back and host the show.
“Being able to host The BET Honors in our nation’s capital is definitely ‘Bucket List’ material for me. Not too often do you get to pay homage to the industry icons you look up to, in front of your peers. I’m honored to be part of the legacy BET has built with this award show,” said Wayne Brady.
BET will announce the 2014 honorees in the coming weeks.
