LOS ANGELES—YNOT Events announced popular cam model and crossover star Shawna Leneé will host the first-ever YNOT Cam Awards in Hollywood, Calif.
“Thank you so much to YNOT for naming me as the YNOT Cam Awards host for 2018,” said Shawna Leneé. “I am so honored and excited to be a part of this amazing event.”
Leneé will take the stage on Oct. 24, at the historic Avalon Hollywood to host the biggest night of the year for the adult webcam industry.
Leneé started in adult modeling in 2005, and has won more than 20 industry awards since her debut. An expert in webcam affiliate marketing, she is an active social media influencer who also sells photos and clips through her website ShawnaCams.com.
“When the discussion came up here at YNOT about who should host our first-ever Cam Awards, one of the first people we thought of was Shawna Leneé,” said Jay Kopita, co-owner of YNOT. “She has all the qualities we wanted in a host. She’s charming, poised, experienced, witty and extremely well respected in the cam industry. Her experience as a model and also as a businesswoman were just the perfect combination for us.”
Leneé admits she is eager for the assignment and ready to take to the stage in Hollywood.
“It has always been my dream to host an award show and I can't believe this is finally here,” added Leneé. “I invite all models to ask their fans for nominations and votes. Models will not want to miss this event. I just can’t wait to see who wins.”
YNOT is accepting model nomination suggestions through Friday, August 10th. Final nominees will be announced on Monday, Aug. 13.
Shawna Leneé grew up on a small beef farm dreaming of becoming an astronaut. Her love for creativity drove her to start modeling in high school, and she has also participated in various acting and monologue competitions. She holds a degree in entrepreneurship, and is now studying to be an environmental scientist.
Although the event in Hollywood is industry-only, webcam fans around the world will be able to watch Leneé and the YNOT Cam Awards via free live stream.
