This wasn’t supposed to be announced until later tonight, but I’ve just been tipped that AustinZane.com founder and performer Austin Andrews has been voted in as the “fan favorite co-host” at this year’s Grabby Awards in Chicago. He was up against Scott Spears, Trevor Knight, Dean Flynn, and Spencer Reed. As co-host, Austin joins already named emcees Chi Chi LaRue, Honey West, Adam Killian, and Tom Wolfe.
While he’s not exactly a porn household name yet (that’s him in the middle above, with performer Bret Myles on the right and site co-founder Zane Michaels on the left), his fanbase is loyal and loud. I’ve only done a handful of posts on him and AustinZane.com, but the number of outgoing clicks from The Sword to that site has dwarfed the traffic to all my other affiliates, including several big studios, so I’m not surprised he won. Most importantly though, Austin is a really nice guy!
The Grabbys are on May 26th, and this year’s nominees will be revealed later tonight.
And in case you missed it, here’s a hardcore preview of AustinZane.com:
