“EWN is a small team that punches above its weight. That’s down to the dedication and hard work of everyone in our national team,” said Katy Katopodis, Eyewitness News Group Editor in Chief.

“EWN’s Cape Town reporters are committed to delivering relevant news to their audiences, and for giving a voice to communities in a balanced and engaging way. Passion drives us more than awards do, but the recognition is wonderful, and much appreciated,” said Charlotte Kilbane, Eyewitness News Cape Town News Editor.
