Keegan-Michael Key to Host the 2016 Peabody Awards

(via Variety)

The Peabody Awards are on track to getting mentioned in the same conversation as the Emmys, the Golden Globes, etc. on top of being the prestigious awards that they have always been.

Having shifted from an afternoon announcement to a telecast and a whole evening affair, The Peabody Awards have really stepped up their game since 2015. Last year, they had Fred Armisen host and now they’re having another high profile comedian in Keegan-Michael on board to host this year.

The actual event will happen on Saturday, May 21st, but there will be a special that will air a few weeks later on June 6th at 8PM on Pivot.
