An award for Evan Davis
Evan Davis has won the Broadcasting Press Guild award for best radio presenter. This is not a surprise - but nonetheless thoroughly good news. He has been terrific on Today where he came for a one year stint - but everyone wants him to stay and he is staying. And although no longer the BBC's economics editor he can still bring his huge knowledge of the subject to the Today feast - and many of his interviews are richly informed by his economics background. And in a year where there's no shortage of economic subjects.
On The Bottom Line (podcast) (Radio 4, 1730 Saturday) his expertise, reputation and presence means we get very good people from business to talk about a wide range of subjects - and we should not forget his brief moment of stardom as a comic for Comic Relief.
