Editor's viewpoint: Eamonn Holmes truly deserving of the breakfast show vote
Eamonn Holmes has further proof of his success in becoming Northern Ireland's greatest broadcasting export after being hailed as the best television morning breakfast show host.
Now a veteran at helping the UK to waken up each morning, his longevity in the role is matched only by his professionalism. Great broadcasters make the job look effortless and Eamonn performs that task with aplomb.
He can carry the soft stories as well as the harder interviews and always without raising the blood pressure of viewers.
His work ethic is renowned, never knowingly turning down a job, and he remains at the top of his game, often in tandem with wife Ruth.
