    That is so deserved, “News Channel of the Year”

    Last year must of been a typo or something even more sinister. Sky had the title right from the first time it was awarded and obviously deserve it.

    Not seen the full results yet but I think Waghorne got a gong as well

    Well done to Sky, as much as I have found their coverage a little tedious towards the end of the year and beginning of this year, [the whole “lets blanket coverage something [i/e Suffolk Murders “Breaking News – Scaffolding being pup up outside house”] for ages, yet nothing is really happening.”] I think they deserve it….

    Yeah, Sky News defintely deserved to regain the RTS News Channel of the Year award. BBC News 24 deserved it last year, as Sky News did slip a bit quality wise, but Sky News have made a few good improvements of late and nobody does what they do better than them! But competition is good, and BBC News 24 is a much improved channel too. Well done to the Sky News team though.

    *scratches head* Am I the only one who couldn’t care less who wins the News Channel Of The Year Award (i.e. it won’t make any difference to which channel I tune into)?

    Just a thought

    Well what is a good meaningful award nowadays apart from the Nobel? All Media and Culture is going down the pan and rolling news is no different.

    Both channels have slipped, sky more than the BBC, I think the timing of giving Sky it is so odd as they have only started to improve in the last few months. The BBC should use it as an excuse to kick off the duffers in their news presentation.

    Saddam Hussein was elected every election as well. How many other news networks were they running against as competition?
