Why not Finnigan for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 74-year-old television host, as a 2022 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Finnigan so important is the potential and influence she now has, rather than anything she has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the television host have already been named ‘English Of The Year’ by some major English newspapers and even ‘Manchester Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Manchester (Judy Finnigan's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the television host was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Judy Finnigan Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 18 Aug 2022
“Congrats! Judy has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 18 Aug 2022
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Judy Finnigan?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 18 Aug 2022

Could 2022 officially be the Year of Judy Finnigan?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2022 Person of the Year.
