Yeah, saw this on Sky News this afternoon. Well done Jeremy, he definitely deserved that award, and a very humble speech from him too. He is Mr Sky News! – I see that they gave him the day off today to celebrate as well.
I wonder which characteristics helps jury decide, who will receive the award. For me it would be very difficult just to choose between Sky presenters (Jeremy Thompson, Allan King, Chris Roberts or Mark Longhurst) and there are also so many other news programmes. Very successful start of the year for Sky News!
Sky News? senior anchor named Personality of the Year at TRIC Awards
Sky News Presenter Jeremy Thompson has been named Satellite/Digital TV Personality of the Year at the prestigious TRIC Awards.
The award came just two weeks after Sky News was named News Channel of the Year, for the third year running, by the Royal Television Society.
The annual awards presented by TRIC – the Television and Radio Industries Club – recognise the outstanding talent and achievement throughout the field of British Broadcasting. Collecting the award at the annual ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House, Jeremy said: “This is a great personal honour that also recognises the hard work of all my colleagues at Sky News. News is a team game and I believe Sky News has the best in the business. Sky News has changed the face of British television news in recent years and become the news channel of choice.”
