Liberal Democrat Voice Awards: The shortlists (8): Political Broadcaster and commentator

The Liberal Democrat Voice Awards are but 26 hours away. At 10 pm on Saturday 14 September, in Castle 2 of the Crowne Plaza, with cash bar on hand, and an imaginative dress code, the best in blogging, campaigning, social media and politics in general will be feted in a ceremony filled with razzmatazz, glitz and glamour.

And so we come to the end of the shortlists we’ve been drip feeding you for nearly a week now. The final categories are political broadcaster and political commentator (print/online) of the year. The nominations were submitted either via the Summer members’ survey or directly from readers during the first 3 weeks in August.

  • Still can’t believe Nick Robinson got nominated for both. Mind you neither of them specifies non-partisan. Or indeed, competent. [/miaow]

  • Dan Hodges, Janan Ganesh are complete jokes! Ganesh is all that is wrong with the media in this country

    Others fair enough – would go for Cathy Newman and Will Hutton/Steve Richards
