A story about a man from Northamptonshire who had an operation to fit a cochlear implant won the Best News Coverage category at the Creative Diversity Awards 2014 in London last night.
The special report, which was divided into two packages, was written, produced and presented by Claire McGlasson, filmed by Chris Warner and edited by Matt Stone.
The event at London Studios was hosted by actor and presenter Warwick Davis who lives in Yaxley near Peterborough. Awards for the various categories were handed out by celebrities including Alesha Dixon, Jonathan Ross and Adam Hills.
My career has had a really positive shift recently and I’m now regularly offered jobs that have no reliance on my size.
I hope this is in part down to a desire from broadcasters to be more inclusive and representative.
It’s important that the talent we see on TV reflects the diversity we have in society, and in turn will help to promote acceptance.
I'm delighted ITV Anglia has won the award.
Working on news we're often up against a very tight deadline so it was fantastic to follow Jon's journey over several months.
I'm really grateful he shared something so momentous with us and our viewers.
