The Inverclyde Sports Personality Awards will have a new presenter. With Jean Johansson away on filming duties, Radio Clyde 1’s present Amber Zoe will be presenting the much-loved awards, of which Riverside Inverclyde is a proud sponsor.

Amber Zoe said:

"I’m absolutely delighted to be hosting this years’ Awards and thrilled to be stepping into the shoes of the wonderful Jean Johansson while she is away filming, I hope to be just as sparkly as she is! 

"I’m excited because it’s a chance for local talent to be showcased, praised and recognised as it deserves to be. It represents the best of Inverclyde’s sports personalities and gives the younger generation really great role models to look up to and aspire to.

"I also love that there are awards for schools and young people, which is something so unique about this awards ceremony, I love that children can come along too – a real family event. I can’t wait to be celebrating the success and diversity of sporting personalities in Inverclyde!"
