Welsh journalist, broadcaster, weather presenter and drummer Owain Wyn Evans discusses his career with RTS Cymru.
A question – who wrote: “There are three structural things that the right needs to happen in terms of communications... 1) the undermining of the BBC’s credibility; 2) the creation of a Fox News equivalent / talk radio shows / bloggers, etc, to shift the centre of gravity; 3) the end of the ban on TV political advertising”?
“When you’re young, you’re going to do your best work – you’re fearless and you take risks that you wouldn’t take when you’re older,” said David Henshaw, a former BBC reporter and producer who has run his own indie, Hardcash Productions, for almost three decades.
"It’s always going to be risky and you only get the really good stuff by taking risks"
Henshaw was speaking at an RTS Futures event on investigative journalism in London. The multi-award-wining film-maker received an RTS Fellowship in 2009.
Communications charity Media Trust has teamed up with ITV News to launch Breaking into News, a nationwide competition to search for ITV’s next up and coming broadcast journalist.
The initiative was founded eight years ago and aims to promote diversity in broadcast journalism.
Fronted by journalists Charlene White and Ria Chatterjee, Breaking Into News is now open to everyone of all ages and backgrounds and welcomes individuals with little or no media experience.
