About: I have been deeply involved with British newspapers for around 40 years, working at local, regional and national press level as a reporter. My contacts in the national media go back many years and have close contacts with many senior figures in Fleet street. For the past 20 years, I have directed the Journalism Programme here at the London College of Communication (formerly Printing). I have strong views on all issues facing the media today, and a good contexual knowledge of the history of the media. I am on the board of the Media Society, and a judge for the British Press Awards and the Regional Press Awards.
