When I began in broadcast journalism in 2001 I had no hint what I was doing. How do I work out an agreement? Why are field press reporters so cold? How do I pitch a story? I shyly approached the couple of black press reporters operating in news and got mainly shade in return. I didnt get it however I found out how to browse the system by locking on to a couple of allies. Quick forward to today and I wish to make certain the next generation gets assistance so they can kill in methods I never ever envisioned. Numerous of you young broadcasters, comms, pr and digital developers of colour are exploding my DMs and I wish to satisfy you all. So how do I make time for you without having my household divorce me? Go Into @codeblackcn?. Ive wished to deal with this network of black interactions pros because they began and now is my opportunity. Were holding an unique occasion simply for YOU.
