Three Press Guild Awards for BBC Radio 4

BBC Radio 4 has received three honours at this year’s Broadcasting Press Guild Awards in London as voted for by media journalists.

bpgThe station’s John Humphrys takes away the Harvey Lee Award for outstanding contribution to broadcasting for his interview with George Entwistle on the Today programme which preceded the Director General’s resignation later that day.

The judges said the BBC veteran’s “tenacious interviewing of politicians and others in the news made his name a byword for fearless inquisition”.

The radio broadcaster of the year award was won by former newsreader Charlotte Green, who retired from broadcasting in January this year after 25 years on the station. Charlotte was up against Martha Kearney, who has presented Radio 4’s lunchtime news programme, The World At One, since 2007 and is a previous presenter of Woman’s Hour and Jarvis Cocker.

And the prize for best radio programme went to “Soul Music”, which explores music with a powerful emotional impact.

The Broadcasting Press Guild was founded in 1974 and has more than 120 members – journalists who specialise in covering television, radio and the media. They include critics, previewers, media correspondents and feature writers from national newspapers, broadcasters and leading trade journals and websites.
