Top award for Dearne FM journo

A Dearne FM journalist has picked up an award for his recent documentary on dyslexia, beating off stiff competition from fellow undergraduates and postgraduates.

Andrew Wilson has been recognised for The Dyslexia Controversy by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council, which he created last year at the University of Sheffield before joining the Lincs FM Group station.

His work has been chosen for the ‘TV – Long Form’ award – a category that recognises a news based feature between 3 and 9 minutes in length and is sponsored by the BBC.

The awards are chosen by the BJTC council, which is made up of major industry players from both the public service and commercial sectors. It will be presented to Andrew on Wednesday evening by Sangeeta Bhabra, star presenter on ITV Meridian East and Tom Beesley, Chairman of the BJTC at a ceremony at ITV/ITN’s headquarters in London. He will also be presented with a cheque for £600.

Andrew said: “I am delighted to have been chosen for the award. I really enjoyed working on the film and I am honoured that it has been selected for praise by such respected people from the world of journalism.”
