*Get used to Anthony Anderson hosting the NAACP Image Awards for the next two years.
The “Black-ish” star has signed a deal with the civil rights organization and TV One to continue as host for the 47th and 48th Image Awards telecasts.
The 47th NAACP Image Awards will air live on TV One on Friday, February 5, 2016 as a two-hour special from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. The live telecast will also include a one-hour live pre-show from the star-studded red carpet.
“I look forward to the NAACP Image Awards each year! The NAACP Image Awards always delivers an epic evening with the best of the best across film, TV, music, and literature,” said Anderson. “It is a privilege and honor to be asked back to host for the next two years – there is no doubt that this year’s show is going to be magnificent. I may even have a few surprises up my sleeves!”
