Emmy Award-winning comedian, actor and writer Stephen Colbert will host the Excellence in Advertising on Radio (EAR) Awards set for Nov. 2.

Clear Channel Radio will host the luncheon at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.

The panel of judges includes Amy Corr, managing editor of MediaPost's online newsletters; Scott Donaton, publisher of Advertising Age and Creativity; Teressa Iezzi, editor of Creativity; Jonah Bloom, editor of Advertising Age; Bradley Johnson, director of data analytics for Advertising Age and former editor of American Demographics; and Josh Jackson, co-founder and editor in chief of Paste.

Judges will be selecting the best advertising creative in six different award categories following a preliminary judging phase to be handled by dozens of advertising executives. Clear Channel Radio announced an industry-wide call for entries earlier this month.

EAR Award prizes for the best radio creative include $1,000,000 in radio airtime, a new BMW 3 series convertible, a pair of new Mini Coopers, a private chartered jet to any U.S. destination, and more.
