Kate Garraway was honoured with a special award at this year's TRIC Awards today (September 15).
The Smooth Radio presenter deservedly received the 'TRIC Special Award', recognising her fantastic career in broadcasting over the past 25 years.
The TRIC Awards (Television and Radio Industries Club) celebrates broadcast technology and related industries across TV, Radio & online. It is a not-for-profit organisation, raising money for good causes through social events.
A surprised Kate said: "It's been tough for everybody, and so many people have said how amazing it is that TV has stayed on air, radio kept going.
"It's all the people that make the TV, and lay the cables, and sponsor the event. We're all in an amazing industry. I think TV and radio has done something very special.
"It's kept people informed, made people laugh, so everybody should be really proud. Thank you for allowing me to be part of something so amazing."
Kate's success follows her award for 'Best Authored Documentary' for her powerful Finding Derek film, following her journey while husband Derek Draper battled Covid-19.
