Jeremy Paxman took home the prestigious Outstanding Contribution Award, which is given at the discretion of the jury, for his distinguished and varied career achievements that span multiple decades in the television industry.
Simon Bucks, Chair, RTS Television Journalism Awards, said: “In an incredibly busy year for news, the quality of entries was exceptional; probably the best I can remember for many years. In several categories the judges agreed that many of the entries would be a worthy winner. And although Ukraine was undoubtedly the dominant story, it is gratifying that plenty of other important topics – U.K. and international – are represented among the nominations and winners.”
The RTS Television Journalism Awards 2023, in partnership with Wolftech and Dataminr, were held at the London Hilton on Park Lane, hosted by journalist and presenter, Dan Walker.
