Background information

Much of my career has been spent in television. I have s­pent over three decades as a news journalist and reporter, first working for the BBC and later Anglia Television.

12 years ago, I became the media spokesperson for the Diocese of Ely. Since moving on in March 2011, I have been working as a freelance broadcaster, trainer and consultant.

I have published a collection of usefu­l articles, which are u­pdated regularly and published on this website.  If you have a story to tell on radio or TV, or you’re looking for good press coverage, you’ll find pages of valuable info on journalism and the media.

I have compiled a range of Media Tips for those who want to know more about working with the media.

There’s an article on News Values, the factors that contribute to the degree of interest a news story stimulates and to its importance.

I also have several pages with tips for taking photos for the publication in the media.
