Dissecting the media, slice by slice

Kingston MA Journalism


Journalism experience:

Reporter, Newark Advertiser, Newark-on-Trent

During my time at the Newark Advertiser I acted as a reporter, in the field and in the newsroom.

Online assistant, Daily Express / Daily Star, London

During my time at the shared offices of the Express/Star I became acquainted with a range of CMS nuances and wrote for news and sport sections of the two sites.

News Editor, Riveronline.co.uk, Kingston

As news editor of Kingston University’s news website riveronline.co.uk, I coordinated a very successful news package.  Our coverage of the student demonstrations was picked up by Channel 4, Five Live and Sky News.

Newsroom Assistant, News Shopper (Newsquest), Bromley

I was labelled a work-horse by one reporter at News Shopper for the quantity of copy I produced during my time there.

Newsroom Assistant, Surrey Advertiser (formerly Guardian Media Group), Guildford

This was a useful introduction to working in a newsroom and being a reporter.  I experienced court reporting and telephone interviewing, as well as producing a fair amount of copy for the paper.
