BBC Look East presenter Stewart White is up against Channel 4 News’s Jon Snow and Newsnight’s Jeremy Paxman for the Presenter of the Year title at next Wednesday’s Royal Television Society awards.
“I think it’s unusual for somebody from the regions to be short-listed so I’m quite pleased,” White told the East Anglian Daily Times in an interview
“I’m up against two people who I really respect so there is no shame in losing to them.”
White worked with Paxman at Radio Brighton earlier in their careers.
“I’m sure he won’t remember me. I shall probably go over and mention to him we used to work together,” White told the paper.
