Neil Mitchell from 3AW won the 2014 Quill for Best Radio Current Affairs Report.
This successful radio campaign over five months closed a legal loophole around the drug testing of drivers involved in fatal accidents. The series of reports – inspired from a single line in a court story – illustrated the immediacy and influence of radio. Legislation was changed and drivers are now more accountable with the toughest laws in the country.
Jon Faine, Dan Ziffer and Andy Burns of ABC Radio were highly commended in this category.
