STV News Westminster correspondent Kathryn Sampson has won a prestigious accolade at the Royal Television Society awards.
On Wednesday, Sampson picked up the Nations and Regions Presenter of the Year award at a ceremony in London.
The journalist was nominated for her work on STV’s current affairs show Scotland Tonight as well as the STV News at Six news programme.
Sampson was praised by the judges for her “empathy when needed, passion and humour” when announcing the win.
She was nominated alongside The View and Sunday Politics reporter Mark Carruthers in Northern Ireland and ITN’s Charlene White, who presents for ITV London and ITV News.
In 2021, an interview with the Prime Minister conducted by Sampson went viral after she presented Boris Johnson with a £20 note following plans to cut Universal Credit.
