Alex Crawford is RTS journalist of year for 4th time

Sky News correspondent wins award for her reporting from Libya.

Sky News special correspondent Alex Crawford was named RTS journalist of the year for an unprecedented fourth time last night in recognition of her reports from the heart of the Arab Spring uprisings.

In the award citation the judges said: "The judges recognised the extraordinary achievement of not only Alex Crawford but also her team in getting unique access to the frontline in Libya - in particular capturing the first proof that Ghaddafi was attacking his own people. It was brave, vivid conflict reporting of the highest order: compelling viewing on a story of major importance."

Al Jazeera English was named news channel of the year for the first time, again in recognition of its coverage of the Arab Spring and Libya in particular.
