Local TV: no pressure


There's a buzz around the Centre for Journalism following the news that we won our bid to run a Local TV station for Maidstone and Tonbridge this week - and it seems expectations are already running high.

The Guardian's Roy Greenslade, who recently caused a stir with an article criticising the Local TV project in London, has written a blog post today in praise of the KM Group's local credentials and the TV experience of our own Tim Luckhurst.

Lydia Hamilton to join ITV Meridian


More good news on the employment front: Lydia Hamilton, who graduated last week from our BA in Journalism and the News Industry, will be joining ITV Meridian in September on a 12-month paid internship.

It's good evidence of how a strong final-year project can open doors. Lydia's TV documentary on how funding cuts are affecting black and ethnic minority arts organisations was one of the things that helped her to bag the internship.

It's great news for Lydia, for Meridian and for us here at the CfJ.

Trebles all round.
