Journalism Week - 15 - 18 November 2016
Over the years, Journalism Week has established a reputation for bringing some of the key figures in the industry to Leeds, and this November will be no exception. Channel 4's Alex Thomson will open Journalism Week on Tuesday 15 November, drawing on his experience as Chief Correspondent for one of the UK's most respected news programmes. Alex is the longest-serving on-screen journalist on C4 News since the channel began. In more than 25 years, he's covered over 20 wars; led major investigations and continues to front the programme from around the world.
Joining Alex are a range of high profile journalists from some of the UK's biggest regional and national media outlets. Students will hear from The Times' Digital Strategist Joseph Stashko, Guardian Columnist Erwin James and BBC Sports News Correspondent Richard Conway. There will also be talks from BBC Top Gear's Digital Product Lead, Anthony Dhanendran; ITV News' Diversity Consultant, Vidar Hjardeng; and Sheffield Star Cartoonist, James Whitworth.
