Best News Program - The Brief with Jim Clancy
Best News Channel - Sky News
Best News Presenter - Mark Austin
Best Regional Presenter - Paul Clark
Best Regional Programme - North West Tonight
Best Weather Presenter - Naz Gaffar
Most Improved Presenter in 2013 - Kay Burley
Hard as Nails - Jon Snow for his interview with Sir Alex Ferguson
Over the Top - Huw Edwards
Biggest Disappointment - The BBC NBH relaunch, much rather the studios and presentation in TVC
Best Theme Music - CNN
Best General Pres. (Graphics / Astons / Etc.) - Sky News
Sorely Missed (but not necessarily deceased!) - Paul Mason leaving Newsnight and Bill Neely leaving ITV
Overall Top of the Pops - Jeremy Thompson
Best New Kid on the Block - Not really a new kid but Mark Stone's coverage from Beijing has been incredible with astounding reports breaking new ground in the country
News Story of the Year - The Boston Bombings and ensuing manhunt, Margaret Thatcher death, Lance Armstrong scandal, New Pope, The Kenyan Shopping Mall bombings, US Government Shutdown, Spanish Train Crash, Prince George's Birth and Nelson Mandela funeral...and IMO its been a slow news year!
Outstanding Contribution to TV News for the Year or Special Mention - Bill Neely for what has been another incredible year for him leading the way in the field of foreign reporting and capping off a remarkable career with ITN...and also for completing the London Marathon a week after returning home from Boston following his coverage of the Boston Bombings.
2014 Emerging Talent: One to Watch - Emily Maitlis...Paxman she's coming after your job!
Scoop of the Year - Not so much of a scoop but Alex Thomson's exclusive coverage of the Central African Public Crisis was gripping and worthy of more attention which sadly is lacking in African countries amongst foreign media.
Looking forward to - European Elections and the Scottish Referendum. Hopefully a news year akin to 2011 would be excellent from a news junkie's perspective.
