Nina Hossain said: “I’m delighted to be hosting this year’s Kent Press and Broadcast Awards. It is more important than ever that we recognise the vital and valuable contribution regional and local journalism plays, and reward those who are doing the very best of it in the county.”

The not-for-profit awards are organised by Tunbridge Wells based PR and marketing agency Maxim, Account Director Rachel Knight commented “It is very important to us that KPBA evolves, just as the local media does. In consultation with the judges, we’ve changed a few categories this year so they better reflect the day-to-day work that takes place in Kent’s newsrooms.”
