Bartholomew Hall wins prestigious NCTJ award


‘Scoop of the year’ goes to Bartholomew Hall

Bartholomew Hall, KMTV reporter, has won a prestigious National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) award at their Awards for Excellence, held at Twickenham Stadium.
The judges said his story – for an investigative report on the cause of a fire in Whitstable – ‘highlighted an issue which really mattered to communities involved’.
Bartholomew was a Year in Journalism student and now works as a reporter at KMTV Kent, whilst completing his degree at Kent.
Bartholomew Hall said: “If it wasn’t for everything I learned at the CFJ, from following every lead, keeping in touch with contacts and the value of FoIs [Freedom of Information requests] then this story just wouldn’t have happened.
“A year ago I wouldn’t have even considered myself a journalist and just getting myself stuck in to all the opportunities has been life-changing.”
Congratulations Bartholomew, and to Emma Ogao and Rut Urios Vidal who were all shortlisted for awards.
