Invitation to attend live transmission of Radio 4's Media Show

On 20 June Radio 4's The Media Show will broadcast a special edition live from the Radio Theatre at Broadcasting House. They have  subtitled the event "Revolutions" because they are looking at the revolution that is taking place in how the news is reported. Media Show editor Richard Hooper hopes this will be of interest to students in the Centre for Journalism and he invites you to apply for free tickets via this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours/shows/the_media_show_20june18

Amol Rajan, the BBC's Media Editor, who you will all recall from this year's Bob Friend Lecture, is presenter of the Media Show. He will be joined on 20 June by Fran Unsworth, the BBC's Director of News and Current Affairs and a panel of journalists who are disrupting the mainstream media. There'll be a chance for members of the audience to ask questions. After the broadcast there will also be an opportunity for you to meet Amol and ask questions.  I encourage you to apply. It is a great opportuniuty  

TV presenting opportunity - but you'll have to be quick!

The Street Soccer Foundation - a charity that uses the power of football to help homeless people get their lives back on track - is looking for some help from CfJ students to present a series of TV interviews for its Street Soccer Show.

The show's episodes will help to promote the charity to a wider audience via its web site and Youtube. Episodes will include interviews with people who are benefitting from Street Soccer's academy system, interviews with the business that are supporting the cause, and fun football challenges. 

Want to help with AMMPE's social media presence?

Do you love social media? do you take pride in carefully crafted instastories? Do you want some CV experience running accounts for a big organisation? The Worlwide Association for Women Writers and Journalists' biannual conference is coming to the UK Nov 6-9 and we need some help! The Centre for Journalism is one of 4 partner organisations getting things ready. We are on twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn but need help keeping it updated. Maybe even coming up with an Instagram account. 

We are looking for volunteers to help beef up our online presence. This is an unpaid position that will cover expenses if needed, but it also gives you privileged access to the conference in November. So many incredible journalists will be there. You wouldn't be left alone: our lecturer Laura Garcia will be coordinating and guiding the people who are chosen for this. 

INTERESTED? Please send an email to l.garcia@kent.ac.uk with a couple of ideas of things that we could do for AMMPE's social media presence. Men and women are welcome to apply for the position. Deadline to express interest is May11th, 2018.
