Boglarka covers migrant crisis for Sky News


2015 Bob Friend Scholar Boglarka Kosztolanyi is doing a tremendous job working as a local fixer for Sky News correspondents covering the migrant crisis in Austria, Hungary and Serbia. Followng her successful work experience at Sky News HQ, Boglarka returned to her native Hungary where Sky asked her to use her excellent combination of journalism and language skills to help their team cover the biggest story of the summer.

Working with  correspondents Mark Stone, Stuart Ramsay and Andy Wilson, Boglarka has set up interviews and live transmissions. She has wrangled with the local police and she has pursued refugees into stations,  across railway tracks and into packed carriages. 

So far her work for Sky has involved frantic travel between locations including Vienna, Budapest, Nickelsdorf  and Bicske. She thinks Germany may be next.  Image depicts Boglarka and Sky New colleagues stopping for a very quick bite to eat somewhere in Austria.

KMTV - potential intern shifts


KMTV, The Centre for Journalism's new joint venture with the KM Group, is gearing up for its launch online, ahead of the full digital terrestrial TV launch on Freeview, Virgin and possibly Sky next year.

There is the possibility of some paid shifts for suitable interns this summer. It's a potential opportunity that could suit recent graduates from our BA and MA programmes.

There are no guarantees at this stage, but KMTV's new news editor, Andy Richards, would be interested in seeing CVs and examples of video/TV work. If you're interested and available, contact Andy on:
