Current positions



I’m a broadcast journalist and television producer. Before joining the university I worked as a Programme and News Editor at ITV Granada Reports, where I still take freelance shifts. I’ve worked across ITV News at other regions and on national news, on both foreign and home news desks. I’ve won awards for television and digital journalism. In confusing times I think TV news, and particularly regional TV news, must play an ever more important role.


I’m module leader on the third year Journalism Practice module and teach across all levels.
