Breakfast presenter Steph McGovern to host APM Awards
Posted by APM on 21st May 2014
Over the past 10 years Steph has reported on business and finance from around the world, most recently from the Eurozone crisis summits in Brussels and the Italian debt meetings in Rome.
Originally from Middlesbrough, Steph's first TV appearance was on a programme about women in science. She had just won the title of Young Engineer for Britain, after saving Black & Decker over 1m on a design she did for their Leaf Hog product. This led to work experience on Tomorrow's World and, eventually, to producing the financial news on Radio 4s Today programme.
During the financial crash Steph was the lead producer of business news on all bulletins, working with business editor Robert Peston at the forefront of the award-winning coverage of the credit crunch. She soon began broadcasting herself, presenting on 5Live and hosting her own slot Stephs Sunday Shift where she spent time in over 50 different workplaces across the UK, including a gas rig in the Irish Sea, an air traffic control centre and a nuclear power plant.
Now the business reporter for Breakfast, Steph will follow a string of high profile personalities who have hosted the prestigious APM Awards such as Fi Glover, Chris Hollins, Angela Rippon, Bill Turnbull, Adrian Chiles and Andrew Castle.
The awards dinner is known for being the most glamorous event of the year and has become the most prestigious night in the professional calendar. The spectacular setting of London Hilton on Park Lane makes for an entertaining evening of celebration.
You still have time to submit to the APM Awards and be in with a chance of walking away with the much-coveted trophy. Entry into the APM Awards is free, and submissions are welcome up until Wednesday 25th June 2014.
Joining T-Systems as category sponsors are 20|20 Business Insight, BAE Systems, Doosan Babcock, Network Rail, Program Framework, QinetiQ, Shell and Project magazine.
