News Page 29th January 2018

A rising TV presenting star will join a professional YouTuber, a newspaper editor and a film-maker at an industry panel event for Journalism students at the University of Northampton.

Digital Destinations will see Aaron Roach Bridgeman, who has hosted a string of hard-hitting Channel 5 documentaries, talk to undergraduates about his rise to national TV presenter.

Also giving industry tips on the day will be Shantania Beckford, a beauty vlogger with more than 200,000 subscribers, Bromsgrove and Droitwich Standard editor, Tristan Harris, and film-maker Stewart Lawley, who is creative director at a media production company.

The event, which takes place on Monday 5 February, is part of Changing Futures Week – a five-day University wide showcase of industry speakers.

Journalism Lecturer, Marverine Cole, who will be hosting the panel, said: “Changing Futures Week is all about offering our students plenty of tips, hints, advice and inspiration from people who are already successful in the industry.

“All of the guests have made a name for themselves in the digital space. The success of all the speakers shows our students that are so many different ways to make themselves a career in the media.”

Digital Destinations is open to current students at the University of Northampton only.
