Shortlist out for 40th Press Guild awards

LBC 97.3’s Nick Ferrari will go head-to-head with Mishal Husain, the newest presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, in the voting for the 40th annual Broadcasting Press Guild Awards.

The awards, sponsored by Discovery Channel, will be presented next month at a lunch in central London.

The news presenters are both shortlisted for the BPG’s Radio Broadcaster of the Year award, together with Jarvis Cocker, for his programmes on BBC Radio 4 and BBC 6 Music, and Cerys Matthews, of BBC 6 Music.

BBC Radio 4 has all four nominations for the Radio Programme of the Year. The Long View is shortlisted alongside The Russian Gambler, Tweet of the Day and Woman’s Hour.

The BPG Awards, sponsored by Discovery Channel for the second consecutive year, are selected independently by journalists who write about TV and radio – correspondents, critics and previewers. The radio awards are selected by a panel with a specialist interest in radio.

The full list of radio nominations is:
