Event description

Description

Our Creative BFD events aim to shine a light on the Creative Industries across Bradford. Over the next year a number of events will be hosted at BCB Radio and feature a range of Creative and Media professionals.

BCB is changing .. and so is the news and information environment within which we operate.

Umar Farouq is a journalist at ITV Calendar. In his previous role he was Social Media Journalist at The Times of London. He has also worked for the Telegraph, Guardian, Sky and the BBC.

In this event he'll provide a unique insight into the workings of a modern-day television newsroom, with particular focus on how story-telling on a television news programme has evolved. He will also look at the challenges of covering a 'newsy' region with finite resources and reaching out to communities who may have previously felt unrepresented.

There will also be a discussion on how social media can be a valuable tool for newsrooms.

This is a free event and will be the xxx of our Creative BD sessions.
