1) John King, CNN’s election wizard (who managed to demonstrate an encyclopaedic knowledge of the US electoral map despite having about 3 hours sleep in a week) is the first overseas presenter ever to be nominated.
2) The BBC’s Clive Myrie is nominated twice – for Network Presenter (alongside King and Victoria Derbyshire) and Television Journalist (alongside Alex Crawford and Robert Moore).
3) Two of the three nominees for Specialist Journalist are from Channel 4 News – Gary Gibbon and Victoria Macdonald.
