Thanks to those of you who've put my "name" forward.

For the record, Alastair Stewart wins pretty much everything in my book - including "Best Regional Weather Presenter"!

Special mention, however, should go to my friend and colleague Stephen Dixon, who's just so damned effortless on-screen, always gets the tone right, and deserves to be a household name.

*anticipates avalanche of responses about how I've just slammed all my other on-screen colleagues by extension* Laughing
I sometimes speak ABOUT my employer, although not FOR them.
