NEP sponsors the Broadcast Awards 2023



September 2, 2023

Joined by our clients and industry friends, the evening was filled with shared passion and excitement for the incredible individuals and teams who have worked tirelessly together to deliver some of the most remarkable content in broadcast.

NEP’s sponsored award for Best Sports Programme covers all sports related programming (except documentaries)and highlights coverage of sporting events to sports-themed programming.

As one of the most outstanding and historic events of last year, it was no surprise the award went to none other than Whisper and BBC Sports for the BBC, for their exceptional coverage of the Women's EURO 2022!

Upon the winners being presented their award by David, the judges said: “This was the sporting event of the millennium so far and was expertly covered and conveyed with a truly engaging and inspiring naturalness and enthusiasm.”

Another added: “The coverage turned it into a feel good moment for the entire nation.”

Here is the full list of nominees for the Best Sports Programme award, sponsored by NEP:

-The Women's Euro 2022, Whisper and BBC Sport for BBC
