2014

Digital Journalist

London Live

Sep 2013 - Apr 2014
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Working as part of a team of digital journalists and editors to implement the digital vision for London Live, the capital’s first dedicated TV news and entertainment channel. I created articles for the news and current affairs sections of londonlive.co.uk using SEO friendly headlines and written copy. As a digital journalist, I also created shareable, shortform video that reflected the channel’s news output using Premiere Pro for London Live online as well as the London Evening Standard and Independent. I was also responsible for posting shareable content to the channel’s social media channels including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Vine and Spotify. I used analytics, including social media insights and Google Analytics to guide editorial vision both online and on air. I am competent at using SnappyTV – Twitter’s live video editing tool – and used this to create buzz and interaction around live programming. I contributed to and executed regular story ideas for both linear and online channels as well as helping to create programme strands – London Trends, which reflects issues and topics Londoners are talking about which may not be covered by the main news. I used analytical tools to do this.

Producer

BBC

  • Working on various entertainment shows. Creating show content, booking guests and gaining valuable knowledge of equipment, software, and reporting. I also produced outside broadcasts, and generated story ideas.

2012

Producer

BBC

May 2012 - Sep 2012
  • Los Angeles, United States
  • Freelance
  • I pitched and produced 'The Story Of Odd Future.' A one hour Radio 1 Story, which trended worldwide on Twitter the day of it's release.  This was a one off production, in which I organised an international recording schedule, gaining access to a rap group, who notoriously avoid the media and deny interviews.  I convinced the group to give me unprecedented access, which ultimately ended in the piece attaining a 'Most Popular' spot on BBC iPlayer for the entirety of it's availability.
