The regional BT-sponsored Press and Broadcast Awards were handed out in Birmingham with Sue Fisher, of the Tamworth Herald, named as runner-up in the category of Weekly News Journalist of the Year.
Sue has more than 20 years’ experience as a reporter, and her exclusives on important health issues were genuine attention-grabbers and resulted in ministerial action and follow-ups by the BBC, including a live interview in the paper’s newsroom, said the judges.
