Gold Logie Award for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television

The Gold Logie Award for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television, commonly referred to simply as the Gold Logie, is an award presented annually at the Australian TV Week Logie Awards. It was first awarded at the 2nd Annual TV Week Logie Awards, held in 1960 when the award was originally called Most Popular Personality on Australian Television. It was briefly renamed Best Personality on Australian Television in 2016-2017.[1] For the 2018 ceremony, the award category name was reverted to Most Popular Personality on Australian Television.[2]
