Two people who got their early start with the Friday franchise, Nia Long and Mike Epps will now stand in front of a live audience for BounceTV’s Trumpet Awards. The event comes just before we see the two share the screen for ABC’s sitcom Uncle Buck.
Nia Long and Mike Epps, co-stars of the upcoming ABC sitcom “Uncle Buck,” will host the black-tie ceremony, to be held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, January 23, 2016. The 24th Annual Trumpet Awards will air on Bounce TV and nationally in over 75 markets.
