Folio Awards 2024 Celebrates the Best in Media

Master of Ceremonies

Larry Mullins, News Anchor, 1010WINS

Larry Mullins gets fan mail from people who actually enjoy being stuck in New York traffic just so they can listen to him on the radio.  Mr. Mullins is one of the most influential news voices of our time and certainly one of the most recognizable in the nation. He has been burning up the airwaves at 1010WINS for over a decade, is periodically heard as the announcer voice on ABC’s “LIVE w/ Kelly & Mark” and is a former NBC News correspondent.

We are thrilled to announce he joins the Folio Awards lineup as Master of Ceremonies.
