LBC’s Steve Allen was honoured at The Global Awards 2019 on Thursday night.
The early breakfast host was picked by the public as their winner of The LBC Award.
It was presented to him by LBC's Nick Ferrari and Classic FM's Moira Stuart.
This year marks Steve's 40th year on-air at LBC.
Speaking on stage at the star-studded event at London’s Eventim Apollo, he said: “I never thought 40 years ago I’d still be working on the same station!”
“I love every day, I love everything about it - and at the end of the month they give you money!”
Becoming emotional he added: “You have no idea what this means.
“I genuinely cry quite easy, so I’m going to try not to tonight and just say thank you!”
Mark Ronson, Little Mix and classical artist Nicola Benedetti were among the artists to also made the winner's list.
