Sky News wins top gong at British Journalism Awards

Sky News walked away with the honour of News Provider of the Year, at The British Journalism Awards earlier this week. The broadcaster was noted to have had ‘an exceptional year focusing on distinctive, eyewitness journalism and analysing issues which affect all our lives.’

The judges noted that Sky News ‘has a brave record when it comes to chronicling the wars of the 21st century and Ukraine has been no exception”. “It has had correspondents in Ukraine for every day of the conflict and secured a memorable first exclusive interview with President Zelenskyy when it seemed that Kyiv was soon to fall,” they added. “It has also led the way on coverage of the cost of living crisis, partygate and climate’.

John Ryley, Head of Sky News:

“Holding those in power to account, going deep into the data, telling compelling human interest stories, and eyewitness reporting from around the world – that’s what makes Sky News news provider of the year. In a momentous year for news, we’ve kept audiences informed on every platform. From non-stop TV news to TikTok as historic events unfold we take people to the heart of the story.”

The award recognises a news provider that has excelled in terms of serving the public interest and bringing new information to light. The judges look for a news provider which stands out because of the quality of its investigative journalism and ability to break news on matters of public interest.

Other shortlisted organisations included the Financial Times, the Daily Mirror, The Daily Mail and The Times.
