Radio Disney Awards Get Name Change; Sofia Carson To Host Live ARDYs Broadcast On June 16

Disney is updating its annual Radio Disney Music Awards telecast.

After six years as the Radio Disney Music Awards, the Disney music awards ceremony is getting a new name.

This year’s iteration of the ceremony will be called “ARDYs: A Radio Disney Music Celebration.”

Disney is also changing the broadcast format. Whereas previous editions were pre-taped, this year’s ARDYs ceremony will be a live event.

Sofia Carson will host the live broadcast, which is set for 8PM ET/PT on Sunday, June 16.

Additional performers, presenters and special guests will be announced as the ceremony draws near.
