So you want to be a radio reporter?


Chances are you’ve found this blog because you’re somebody who wants to go into journalism or radio or something in between.

So in that case hopefully this video will be useful for you. On the other hand you’re someone who knows me and wants to have a nosy you might think jeez what an ego trip sharing this interview.

Caroline Scott at approached me to do an interview about what it takes to be a radio reporter. I wouldn’t take every word I say as gospel but hopefully you’ll get an insight into my every day workings.

Aimhigher Scrapped

Why not have a gander at my first television package it’ll be about 50 seconds of your time well spent.

It’s about the Aimhigher funding cuts but delightfully voiced over with a slight cold – my highest apologies – but I got a first for it which makes me pretty happy.

Feedback would still be great though.

Following this, Aimhigher asked me to create a short video documentary on what Aimhigher did, how people have felt it has enriched their lives, and reasons why similar work should be continued.

Unplugged Experiment

The Unplugged Experiment was global experiment to see how different people of different ages and background could cope with going without any media access for 24 hours. Bournemouth University was the only university in the UK to take part in this task and in doing so I was selected to be followed by BBC News Technology Correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones.

The piece was broadcast on 22nd October 2010, on BBC Breakfast, BBC News at 1, BBC News24 and Online.

Subsequently BBC Solent interviewed me on the 23rd October 2010.
