Worthington will head the jury for the radio creative awards, organised by the Radio Advertising Bureau, after winning last year's Aerial Gold Award for a DTLR campaign developed with his partner, Paul Brazier.
Last year, the Aerial Awards jury was chaired by Dave Droga, the former executive creative director of Saatchi & Saatchi.
The jury for this year's awards is expected to be announced later this spring.
Worthington, who joined AMV in 1996 after nine years at Bartle Bogle Hegarty, said: "Personally, I love radio. I can't understand clients or agencies who don't get excited by its potential."
Andrew Ingram, the director of the Aerial Awards, added: "We are particularly pleased that Nick has agreed to chair the Aerials this year, as the awards are going from strength to strength."
