Huge congratulations to Kishan Koria who began his career as a journalist today, Sunday 8 May, as a member of the production team for ITN's new politics show, Peston On Sunday. I thought the show was lively and intelligent. Kishan has done exceptionally well to start on a network show, but I know several other soon-to-be graduates in the Centre have agreed,or are about to agree, contracts for other great jobs in great newsrooms.
