It’s time once again for the iO West Del Close Awards!! Last year Top Story! Weekly was fortunate enough to be selected as the Best Scripted Show in for the third year in a row. And that means that we’re no longer eligible to compete for it - and that the award for Best Scripted Show is now named after us!
