RTS JOURNALISM AWARDS: 2021 WINNERS ANNOUNCED

The virtual celebrations were hosted by Mishal Husain, Presenter, BBC Radio 4 and BBC News at Ten.



Chair of the Awards, Simon Bucks, said: "This has been an incredibly challenging year for all journalists and news organisations. Despite the difficulties of covering the Covid-19 pandemic, all the broadcasters who enter these awards have distinguished themselves with some remarkable coverage and every one of the nominees would have been a worthy winner...


"Moreover, many of them were not about the Coronavirus, but a range of other important stories which in any normal year would have dominated the agenda. I congratulate them all. I am also immensely proud that despite all the constraints the RTS has managed to run the Television Journalism Awards so successfully."
