James Deen is a man of firsts, and he'll soon add another first to his resumé: Host of The XBIZ Awards.
According to, who else, XBIZ (link below), James will host the 2015 ceremony, making him the first male performer to ever host the ceremony, now in its 13th year.
“I am both excited and honored to be asked to be the first male host of the XBIZ Awards show,” Deen said. “This event already holds a very special place in my career and now that I’ll actually be hosting the next one, I couldn’t be more thrilled about it.”
The people at XBIZ are just as excited about Deen taking the reigns this year.
“The way James has progressively driven his brand both within and outside of the industry while at the same time stayed passionately devoted and accessible to his global fan base is brilliant,” said Moe Helmy, executive producer of the XBIZ Awards. “We couldn’t be more pleased to be working with him.”
“What James has achieved already is nothing short of remarkable,” said Alec Helmy, founder and publisher of XBIZ. “When we thought about who would make a one-of-a-kind host, James was the obvious choice and the fact that he is the first male to host the show makes this that much more special.”
The show will be in January, though the exact date has not yet been announced. We'll keep you up to date on the latest news as it breaks.
