Local radio personality, Andy Giddings has been confirmed as the host one of the premier events in the local business calendar - the Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards.

This year's awards will return to Rotherham and the event will again be held at the Magna Science Adventure Centre on Friday, October 14 2016.

This year, along with the ten awards from the previous year, a new category has been introduced for Tourism, Leisure or Hospitality, which will be awarded to a business that goes to extraordinary effort to provide more than is expected to their visitors.

For the past 15 years Andy has been a journalist and broadcaster, and is currently the Sports Editor at BBC Radio Sheffield, where he's worked for the past ten years.

As well as being an event host for the past four years, Andy is part of the Toby Foster Breakfast Show and can be regularly heard on national television and radio, specifically BBC Radio Sheffield's Praise & Grumble broadcast following that day's football fixtures.

Mark Hannigan, Operations Manager at Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber, said: "We are delighted to announce Andy Giddings will be host the 2016 awards. Andy is very well known in the area given the work he does as Sports Editor at BBC Radio Sheffield and we look forward to welcoming him to Magna on the 14th October."

A dedicated website for the awards has been launched to provide all the information for entrants, attendees and sponsors.
