Consumer Money Journalist of the Year
WINNER: KATIE MORLEY, TELEGRAPH MEDIA GROUP
As you might imagine, this category is always a competitive affair with numerous journalists submitting initial entries. The six names who made it to the shortlist had already done extremely well to make it as far as they had and, by the time the first phase of scoring had taken part, three names had pulled a little way clear of the pack. When the judges convened for a second time, one name emerged as a clear front-runner so it’s a case of many congratulations to Katie Morley who’s achieved the unique double in 2020 of winning both this category and the one for Consumer Champion.
“Katie is changing readers’ lives through her tireless work; she’s going above and beyond the call of duty and actually producing results that sometimes even officials have been unable to do. She also contains hints and tips to undo wrongs,” one judge pointed out.
“You couldn’t make up some of the stories that Katie regales to her readers. Some companies are so mind-bogglingly bad that you’d have to say certain parts of the financial services industry have a long way to go to get their houses in order,” a second judge commented.
