We know many of you are, or have been, involved with Shortland Street, so it's a pleasure to see that the 27-year old soap has been acknowledged by the Huawei New Zealand TV Awards with the TV Legend award. It's the first time a standalone television show has been honoured with this award and it reflects Shortland Street's ongoing success, its significance in our popular culture and the show's commitment to diversity and inclusion. 'Shorty' has also maintained a stellar reputation as a training ground that continues to provide a great launch pad for the local screen industry. The TV Legend award will be presented at the 2019 Huawei New Zealand Television Awards gala ceremony on Thursday 21 November at Auckland's Aotea Centre.
