Jannine Waddell Awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List 2018

Jannine Waddell says: "I am delighted to receive this MBE in recognition of services to independent television production, a career I love even more today than when I started out in this business over 25 years ago. I feel honoured to work in an industry that is both inspirational and great fun. I couldn't do it without the support of the amazing Waddell Media team and those who work with us to support and share our vision for creating engaging programming for everyone.

“It's especially heartwarming to receive this MBE as Waddell Media celebrates 30 years of programme making. My late father Brian broke new ground when he set up on his own as the first independent production company back in 1988.  Dad was a huge inspiration to me and so many others as he grew the business to become one of the most successful production companies in the UK, Ireland and now globally with our programmes being sold worldwide but with our heart still firmly based in Holywood, Co Down."
