He beats the host of today's event!
Zane Lowe has won the award for Best Radio Show at the Shockwaves NME Awards for his BBC Radio 1 programme tonight (March 1).
The award was presented by the Hammersmith Palais event’s host Lauren Laverne who was also nominated for her XFM show.
However due to Lowe doing a series of interviews backstage he missed his slot and failed to collect the award himself, though speaking to NME.COM later he thanked his listeners.
“You think you’d get used to winning, but it just get’s better every year,” he explained.
Lowe also beat off competition from Chris Moyles, Colin Murray and Jo Whiley.
