BCFE journalism student secures place on the BAI Inaugural Journalism Graduate Programme.
Niamh O’Reilly, who has just completed the two-year HND in Journalism at BCFE in May, has started a paid internship at Newstalk. Supported by the BAI (Broadcasting Authority of Ireland) and Learning Waves, it offers journalism graduates from third level institutions an opportunity to become an integral part of a busy radio newsroom.
Over a five-month period, the graduates will work with an assigned station mentor to complete a series of tasks and to produce content for their radio station’s audience. Niamh is one of five journalism graduates to get selected for the much-coveted programme (the only one from an FE college – the other four were from universities all across Ireland).
Claire Byrne, watch out!
