Winners, winners, winners…
FINWEEK contributing journalist Bruce Whitfield was last week named Sanlam’s Financial Journalist of the Year. In the 34 years that the competition has been held, he’s only the second journalist who has succeeded in winning the prize in consecutive years. The late Finweek journalist Deon Basson achieved that twice.
The versatile Whitfield, who earlier this year was also the overall winner in Citadel’s Words on Money competition, also presents The World at Six on Talk Radio 702 and 567 Cape Talk. In addition, he’s a presenter of the programme Stock Watch on Summit TV.
Marc Ashton, of our website Fin24. com, was chosen as the best newcomer.
Finweek’s Marc Hasenfuss was a finalist in the section for markets and companies, as well as personal finance. Vic de Klerk was also a finalist in the markets and companies section.
