Josh Fordham bags exclusive interview with Charlton boss

Mar
24

Congratulations to MA Multimedia Journalism student Josh Fordham, whose interview with the new boss of Charlton FC made a page lead in this week's Dartford and Gravesend Messenger.

 

Guy Luzon has given few press interviews since his arrival at the club a couple of months ago, so when Josh talked his way into doing a face-to-face with the new manager, the KM gave it a good showing.

Please come to Aodhan's election debate event in Canterbury

Mar
18

As part of his coursework project for the Advanced Multimedia Storytelling module, MA student Aodhan Gregory is running an election debate event next Monday evening (23 March) in Canterbury, starting at 6pm. It’s taking place at the Media Centre on the main university campus.

He’s worked extremely hard to get representatives from all of the main political parties to attend the debate, which will be recorded ‘as live’ for the radio show he presents on Canterbury Student Radio. He’s also recording the event on video to turn into a web film.

This is a great opportunity for CfJ students to witness and take part in a political debate ahead of the most unpredictable election of recent times. It might also provide you with stories for your portfolio.

Jake's pants get national exposure. Again.

Feb
18

As you know, we like to keep close tabs on our former CfJ students as their careers begin to flourish on the world journalism stage.

Occasionally, we (almost) wish we didn't. Especially when that career involves parading their underwear in the pages of national newspapers.
