This year two scholarships will be awarded. . Please click here to find out more about donating to the Steve Hewlett Memorial Fund.
The first 'Hewlett' in 2017 was delivered by Today presenter, Nick Robinson and raised issues about mainstream and social media. We are delighted that Charlotte Moore, has accepted our invitation to delivery this year's lecture.
"As we navigate our way through the seismic changes and challenges taking place in our industry, I often wish I could call on Steve for advice or to get his view on the latest takeover deal or Ofcom quota. Steve was never scared to ask difficult questions of the BBC and yet he was also our greatest champion and supporter. He believed passionately in British creativity and risk taking and in public service television. It’s an honour to be asked to give a lecture in his name."
Refreshments will be provided following the lecture.
The RTS and Media Society would like to thank the University of Westminster for making the venue available.
