Teesside University graduate and BBC Tees presenter Lisa McCormick has scooped a prestigious journalism award.

The awards, held this year on Thursday 18 October, are an annual celebration to recognise various aspects of broadcasting within BBC Local Radio. They aim to celebrate achievement and encourage excellence at BBC local radio stations across England.
