That is so deserved, "News Channel of the Year"



Last year must of been a typo or something even more sinister. Sky had the title right from the first time it was awarded and obviously deserve it.



Not seen the full results yet but I think Waghorne got a gong as well

Well done to Sky, as much as I have found their coverage a little tedious towards the end of the year and beginning of this year, [the whole "lets blanket coverage something [i/e Suffolk Murders "Breaking News - Scaffolding being pup up outside house"] for ages, yet nothing is really happening."] I think they deserve it....

BBC News 24 deserved it last year, as Sky News did slip a bit quality wise, but Sky News have made a few good improvements of late and nobody does what they do better than them! But competition is good, and BBC News 24 is a much improved channel too. Well done to the Sky News team though.
