Many congratulations to Danny Rust, who has just landed a fantastic job as sports reporter for the Essex Echo. He'll be reporting (no doubt entirely objectively) on West Ham United as well as covering tennis and athletics.

Danny graduated from our BA programme in the summer, and tells us that his new sports editor had been keeping an eye on his progress during his time at the Centre for Journalism - and contacted him directly to tell him to apply when the job vacancy came up.

The "Instagram" wedding

Dec
08

As if it is not enough pressure to be a young West African woman and not married. This will be the thought of many West African women who let society define what time it is appropriate to get married.

Today the trend is changing. It is, who can get married and have a luxorious ceremony that is Instagram worthy. In short, get thousands of likes and comments. 

The West African culture is a woman should be married and have children. The weddings were attended by mainly family and a few friends. The marriage ceremony is seen as a family affair.

A turn around for the Turner Prize

Dec
06

Ah, the Turner Prize. The event that encourages the Daily Mail to form its annual opinion of contemporary art. Provoking such fury among the public that its tagline might as well be “My two year old could’ve done that!” My grandmother, chief arts correspondent of the living room, insists that “Turner would be turning in his grave” at each increasingly shocking winner. I hate to say it, but part of me agrees with her.

How NOT to do mobile journalism

Dec
03

After spending several hours at the Chatham Historic Dockyard on a freezing cold Wednesday morning, my group partner [who I won’t name and shame] and I walked away like we had just made it as big-time journalists. We had turned up at the dockyard with a clear plan of action: to find the BBC comedy, Quacks, film-set and to interview several of the cast members – which was incredibly naïve of us to think that we would actually be allowed to do so, but nevertheless, we were big-time journalists ready to break our first CFJ story.
