It has been shortlisted in four categories in the RTS North West Awards including Andy Crane for best presenter on a regional programme, I am Kloot play Moolah Rouge for best regional programme and The Great Manchester Football Show in the best regional sports programme.

It has also been nominated for the Michael Todd Memorial Award for innovation in multi platform category.

Ruth Spratt, director of digital and broadcast at GMG Regional Media, said: “I am absolutely delighted with such a strong line up of nominations in this year’s RTS North West awards.

“The Awards are the benchmark for the best of the region’s television industry and to have such a strong showing in the finals reflects the enormous strides we have made at Channel m to consistently improve and diversify our programme schedule.”

The results will be announced at the Hilton Deansgate Manchester on Saturday November 15.
