The Wonkley Awards
After two weeks of nominations, four weeks of voting and over 11,000 votes – the results for the inaugural Wonkley Awards are in. These awards have been voted for by “Wonks” – those people who follow news and politics religiously. They are voted for by the consumer because their opinion matters more than any other.
This year had 16 different categories, each covering a different aspect of coverage of news and current affairs – as well as interaction between the newsmakers and the followers. Amongst the nominations are some of the best providers of political and news coverage – all nominees are in esteemed company. But there can only be one winner in each category, so without further ado – the winners for the 2010 Wonkley Awards are:
Grog’s Gamut (Greg Jericho)
