Dennis Miller out, Chris Jericho in as Cohost of Podcast Awards Ceremony at NMX



New Media Expo logo Podcaster NewsMuch fanfare was generated earlier this year when it was announced that former Saturday Night Live cast member and Weekend Update anchor Dennis Miller was slated to cohost the Podcast Awards ceremony at this month’s New Media Expo. But it was announced yesterday that Miller is out due to a “scheduling conflict” and he will be replaced by podcaster and professional wrestler Chris Jericho. From the NMX blog linked above:

Chris will replace Dennis Miller who had a scheduling conflict and had to bow out as co-host. However Chris Jericho is no condolence prize, and the NMX team couldn’t be more stoked to have him in participate in this year’s event.

Chris first made a name for himself in the wrestling ring, but has been a successful podcaster for several years now. His podcast is consistently ranked among the top podcasts in iTunes and on the PodcastOne network. He is also lead singer for the metal band Fozzy, and an actor who has appeared in both film and television.

Original awards ceremony cohost Emily Morse is still scheduled for the event, which will take place on Tuesday, April 14th, 6:30PM at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas. Attendees need to be registered with NMX at the “Content Creator Pass” level or higher in order to attend the awards ceremony.
