Published: January 2020

Afternoon Live journalist Simon McCoy will return to present this year’s Kent Press & Broadcast Awards ceremony at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence, Canterbury on Friday 18th September, after proving extremely popular when he first hosted in 2018.

Simon McCoy said: “It’s something of a shock to be asked to present this year’s awards – because I’ve done it before and it means they’re asking me back!”

The not-for-profit awards are organised by Tunbridge Wells based PR and marketing agency Maxim, Account Director Rachel Knight commented “It’s very much a case of ‘being back by popular demand’ as we had overwhelmingly positive feedback when Simon first hosted the ceremony. His sense of humour and popularity, combined with a clear passion for local journalism, made it an easy choice to ask him back.”

Tom Chown, Founder and Creative Director at Digitom said: “2020 sees us celebrate our 10th anniversary of storytelling and we can’t wait to see the cream of Kent’s talented broadcasters receive the recognition they deserve this summer.”
