CNA has been named Channel of the Year by the London-based Association for International Broadcasting (AIB) in the 16th edition of its AIB International Media Excellence Awards (AIBs).
The award recognises the achievements of international journalism and factual television, radio, audio and digital productions.
In announcing the win, the AIB judges cited CNA’s “clear and coherent news editorial values”, the channel’s varied content, as well as the brand’s “meaningful engagement with multiple social media platforms”.
The judges also noted “compelling on-air talent” and polished production skills as compelling factors contributing to their decision.
“We are honoured to receive this prestigious accolade on the global stage from the AIB," said Walter Fernandez, Editor-in-Chief, Mediacorp.
"The factors cited by the international panel of judges for CNA’s win are a validation of the aggressive transformation that CNA has undertaken in recent years as well as the editorial values and desire for excellence that the newsroom has embraced."
Commenting on the award, Tham Loke Kheng, CEO, Mediacorp, added, “I am very proud of the CNA team’s commitment to journalistic excellence, which is needed now more than ever in a fragmented media landscape. During these times, it is important to have a trusted voice with an Asian perspective. Mediacorp will respond to this strong validation by striving to do even better every day.”
