This will be the fourth year of live radio coverage on Radio Six International, the first of these being in Malta 2014. Eurovision Commentator Ewan Spence has anchored the show since then, being joined by a range of co-hosts including Glen Bartlett, Emma Backfish, Ben Robertson, and Sharleen Wright.
“Junior Eurovision showcases talented young performers and it is a delight and honour to share that with the world” said Ewan, “As we begin preparing our commentary booth here in Tbilisi, it’s great to be working alongside Radio Six International once more.”
Radio Six International is a long-running station based in Glasgow. The live broadcast of Junior Eurovision will again be syndicated out to a number of radio stations around the world, taking Junior Eurovision to a wider audience and giving an even great platform for these young artists to share their talents.
Tony Currie, Director of Programmes at Radio Six International said “Radio is a wonderful medium that many people enjoy, we are of course delighted that Fun Kids Radio in the UK will be taking our broadcast on Digital Radio across the country, as well as English-speaking radio stations worldwide.”
Gert Kark, Junior Eurovision Song Contest Supervisor, said “we are pleased that Radio Six International will be broadcasting the Junior Eurovision Song Contest this year, bringing what promises to be a great show to a new and wider audience.”
Last year in Valetta, Ewan was joined by Lisa-Jayne Lewis and she will once again be taking to the commentary booth as Ewan’s co-host for the show.
“Even though I have been closely following the Eurovision Song Contest for 27 years, I only started watching Junior Eurovision until 2015.” said Lisa-Jayne “It was such a privilege to join Ewan for the radio show in Malta last year and am thrilled to be back for the 2017 edition.”
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2017 will be broadcast on Sunday 26th November beginning at 1545 CET / 1445pm GMT. Go to www.radiosix.com to check listings.
