“In the meantime the society will continue its work in championing freedom of expression and supporting diversity in newsrooms, and will also plan for this year’s annual conference.”

Last week Ian Murray stood down as executive director of the society following a row over its reaction to comments made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex about racism in the media.

The awards were previously going to be hosted by ITV News presenter Charlene White, however last week she said she would no longer take part in the ceremony after the controversy over the body’s response to Meghan and Harry’s comments.
