Lauren lands Express job

Nov

We couldn't help but notice a familiar byline on the Express website's coverage of Kanye West's meltdown this morning. That's Lauren Meechan, who graduated from the CfJ's BA programme this summer, and has landed a great job as online showbiz reporter for the Express - having applied through LinkedIn.

Congratulations Lauren.

Today at 1pm we're welcoming former regional newspaper editor Rebecca Smith to the CfJ newsroom.

Oct
04

When we launched KMTV last year as a joint venture between the CfJ and the KM Group, we hoped that it would prove a fertile training ground for our students as they prepare for journalism careers.

And last night's airing of the first edition of sports magazine show Team Talk on KMTV is an indication of just how well this premise is working.
