One year into his job hosting the BBC’s premier current affairs show Newsnight
, Evan Davis has become the most important gay figure on British TV - and Attitude's Man of the Year, supported by Virgin Holidays.
The 53-year-old has come a long way since he began working as an economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies back in the late 1980s. After covering economics for the BBC in the 1990s (including on Newsnight), he went on to host the hugely popular Dragon’s Den from 2005, and served six years on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. But by rising to the top job in BBC current affairs, Evan is arguably the most important gay man on British TV, and for this, we are proud to name him Attitude's Man of the Year, supported by Virgin Holidays.
You can read more about Evan - and the rest of winners from the 2015 Attitude Awards, presented in association with Virgin Holidays - in our special Attitude Awards issue, available to download from 11pm tonight at attitudedigital.co.uk and in shops tomorrow (Thursday October 15).
