CDN Awards: Best News Coverage Award

ITV News Central are to be handed a CDN Award for Best News Coverage, for their strong reporting on Female Genital Mutilation.

The CDN Awards organisers at ITV would like to offer an unreserved apology, for what was a human error in the awards preparation process, that resulted in this name not being read out on the night.

In the ITV News Central coverage, Newcomer Emma Burrows presented a bold series of reports looking at the practice of female genital mutilation from a local perspective, right in the heart of some of the communities most affected by the issue. By sourcing contributors through Facebook as well as incorporating a story via ITV’s Fixers initiative, the team ensured personal testimonies were at the heart of the reports.
