We’re now in the closing stages of the People’s Choice race for this year’s B&T Women in Media Awards, and it’s looking like we could be in for a tighter finish than initially expected!
While Kate Toon from StayTooned has led from the outset, Nine’s Tina Andrew has garnered a stack of votes in just the last couple of days to rocket into second place and close the gap.
Andrew’s late charge has pushed Tiff Ng (The Social Story) down to third, while Denise Barnes (Man of Many) finds herself back in the top five above Samantha Luff (10 ViacomCBS), who has dropped two spots on the leaderboard.
