Well, what a difference a week makes!
The race to become the people’s champion at this year’s B&T Women in Media Awards has entered the home stretch, and there’s been some jostling amongst the lead pack, so much so that three new names are now in the conversation.
Samantha Luff (10 ViacomCBS), Tina Andrew (Nine) and Homaira Razi (Seven West Media) have all taken great strides to rise in the rankings and place themselves in the top five, while Tiff Ng (The Social Story) has edged her way up from third into second.
However, it will take a big effort from one of these ladies to chase down WIM People’s Choice leader Kate Toon (StayTooned), who has extended the gap between herself and the rest of the pack since the votes were last tallied.
