6 weeks of
learning from the industry's professionals
Summary of my time at STV |
THE Placement EXPERIENCE
I spent six weeks in STV North’s newsroom on work placement as a part of my Bachelor's degree. It has not only been an insight into the art of making television but an insight into how to fill a 30-minute bulletin with engaging local news. I followed the daily process of turning the stories from the drawing board in the morning into quality journalism.
It has been a self-developing journey. Observing the standards and phase expected of journalists, despite the limitations to time and space, has forced me to push myself harder.
I can wholeheartedly say that my placement has shaped me into a more confident, professional and capable reporter. More than anything STV has made me more excited to start my career and reassured me that journalism is right for me.
The most memorable part has been the privilege to work with such passionate and friendly colleagues. I truly feel that I’ve learned from the best in the industry. I’ll never take for granted the six weeks I’ve spent with the talented team behind Scotland’s most-watched news programme.
