OBE for Hodge in Honours List

THE publisher of The List event listings magazine for Edinburgh and Glasgow has been awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours List.

Robin Hodge has received his award for services to the arts and culture. The List, now a four-weekly magazine but begun as a fortnightly, was launched in 1985.

Hodge was joined in the list by Scots broadcaster and newspaper columnist, Lorraine Kelly, awarded an OBE for services to charity and the armed forces. She is Colonel of the Black Watch battalion’s Army Cadet Force.

Also receiving an OBE is Scots filmmaker, Murray Grigor, for services to architecture and filmmaking.

Hodge was two years ago the inaugural recipient of the Murray Cochran (Lifetime Achievement) Award at the Scottish Magazine of the Year Awards.
