Personalities from regional television, radio and print were guests at an Editors Lunch held to mark the official launch of this year’s Midlands Media Awards.

The Awards, which recognise the achievements of journalists, photographers and broadcasters, will take place at The Holt Suite, Villa Park, on Thursday June 5.

The Editors Lunch was held at Bournville College, the main sponsor of Birmingham Press Club, which organises the awards in association with Cloud 9 Event Management.

Birmingham Airport, headline sponsor of the awards, was represented at the lunch by Francesca Baller and David Lavender from the Airport’s Press & PR team.

Heart FM breakfast presenter Ed James, who is chairman of the Press Club, said: “Our awards have acknowledged the professionalism of the region’s media for the past 13 years. I am delighted to say they remain, as ever, our flagship event of the year.”
