T3 Gadget Awards 2012: Gadget Personality of the Year

BBC technology reporter Rory Cellan-Jones has taken the limelight as Gadget Personality of the Year at the T3 Gadget Awards 2012

 

Rory Cellan-Jones has been Technology Correspondent for the BBC since 2007 and has become the Beeb’s resident tech guru across online, TV and radio. Of course, tonight he’s the one making the headlines as he walked away with the prestigious award for Gadget Personality of the Year.

Rory faced stiff competition from other gadget luminaries such as Gadget Show favourites Polyanna Woodward and Jason Bradbury - not to mention the notorious Kim Dotcom.

But it was the Mr. Cellan-Jones who got the nod thanks to his hugely popular tech blog over at BBC Headquaters and his knack for sparking debate on all things tech-related, day or night.

Despite never owning a ZX Spectrum, Rory has championed the learning of programming languages among the UK’s youth and has been a vocal supporter of the Raspberry Pi PC – this year’s Innovation of the Year.

Rory got his start at the BBC working as a researcher on Look North in Leeds in 1981 and has been at the corporation ever since. A runner-up for the title of Gadget Personality of the Year at last year’s awards, Rory’s win this year places him rightfully at the top of the UK’s gadget scene.
