Headline of the month goes to…a broacaster!

By Duncan WHIP

Here are the latest headline of the month finalists:

Story: Choristers from Magdalen College School gather at the top of the college tower to sing in the beginning of spring including female singers for the first time.

Headline (The Oxford Mail): Girl singers are May-king history

Story: The team that made Ali G a star is reunited after ITV poaches Channel 4’s Kevin Lygo to run its production arm.

Story: The Duchess of York accepts £27,000 from an undercover News of the World journalist posing as a rich businessman apparently in exchange for securing access to Prince Andrew, and hints that she could do even more for £500,000.

Headline (The Sun):

Oh the greedy old Duchess of York,

She had 27 grand,

She tried to make Them pay half a Mill,

Now she’s leaving Eng-er-land

But there can only be one winner and this month the bottle of Jura single malt whisky goes, perhaps surprisingly, to a broadcaster for the first time.

Channel 4 News is the winner for an on-screen headline which very neatly summed up the political situation on 7 May.

HUNG DRAWN AND COURTED

A bottle of the good stuff is its to ITN HQ at Gray’s Inn Road.
