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.
Yet more evidence that the CfJ is the first stop for industry decision-makers on the look out for talented, committed journalistic talent.
Well done, Danny.
