The Host

Simon ‘Rossie’ Ross will be the host of the 2024 Educate Awards.

The Irish-born broadcaster will host the awards ceremony at Liverpool Cathedral on Friday 15 November 2024.

This will be the eighth year Simon ‘Rossie’ Ross has hosted the awards, which celebrates schools and colleges right across the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester.

Rossie has lived in Liverpool for over 15 years and was the well-known voice of breakfast on Radio City 96.7 for a decade.

In 2018, Bauer relaunched Radio City 2 as Greatest Hits Radio, with Rossie now fronting the breakfast show right across England.

The station plays the greatest hits from the 70s and 80s with a sprinkle of mega-hits from the 60s and 90s thrown in for good measure.

His 25 year career has also seen him hit the airwaves of many cities around the country, including Leeds and London.

Rossie said: “I really love hosting The Educate Awards. 2023 was my seventh year hosting this amazing event at the world famous Liverpool Cathedral and it is such a wonderful night recognising the best teachers and educational staff from across our region.

“The live performances from students from arrival until the end of the night showcases some extremely outstanding artistic talent! This has to be one of the highlights of my year.”
