Extended: year one radio assessment deadline. Information about newsday.

Nov
24
Event date: 
12 December 2016 - 12:30am

Because the newsroom is busy this morning we are extending the radio deadline to 2pm tomorrow, Tuesday. Lunchtime today and tomorrow is clear in the newsroom, and you can also work after hours. This should be plenty of time to finish your piece.

I'm around to give emergency counselling to those having problems with their packages.

Please come to conference at 0930 on Thursday, dressed smartly, as if to interview the Prime Minister. We will be making two programmes. I'll put up lists of who is in which team on a blog here, and will appoint presenters.

Congratulations Lauren.

An outsider looking in – a Muslim’s perspective of America

Nov
20

So unless you’ve taken a trip off to a distant planet the last few weeks, you’ll know Donald Trump is the President-elect of the United States of America. The more likely scenario is that you’ve been in a weird hybrid hibernation – sleeping for a while, waking up to check if it really happened, then pretending it didn’t by going back to sleep - since the dramatic result of a fascinating, but very depressing election. I wouldn’t blame you. We’ve just endured arguably one of the worst elections. We witnessed two candidates who were not particularly liked face off.

Vine is ending and I'm sad: An obituary

Oct
28

Imagine if your favourite app was wiped from the app store and ceased to exsist. The news that Vine will be discontinued over the next few monthsleft me in shock. I was surprised to discover that I was emotionally attached to this app, and so to have that suddenly taken away had me feeling as though I had lost something. Now you're probably thinking, "Katie, get over yourself, it's a bloody mobile app." and I couldn't agree with you more, but let me explain to you why I was so invested in this app.
