University of Bradford Outside Broadcasting Truck; Official Launch
Bradford, United Kingdom
You are invited to attend the official launch of the University of Bradford's brand new broadcasting facilities. Please join us on July 24th to launch our fantastic state of the art Outside Broadcasting Truck.
The Launch event will start at 3:30pm with opportunities to demo our equipment and view our award winning student work. Please make your way to the main entrance of the Horton Building, on the University Campus to enjoy afternoon tea.
Our host for the launch is Tom Ingall, Look North correspondent: After completing a degree at Bradford University. Tom enjoyed his stint in broadcasting and soon returned to Yorkshire to work as Look North's South Yorkshire reporter, which is based in Sheffield. "I love this part of the world, it's a heck of a patch because the only thing it's missing is some coastline". Tom's work has involved travelling to Los Angeles and the South of France covering a wide range of stories from the floods of 2007 to extreme ironing in a wind tunnel at Magna.
Our Keynote Speaker is Professor Mark Cleary, Vice Chancellor and Principal to the University of Bradford. http://blogs.brad.ac.uk/from-the-vc/
