Sky News Radio (with Kiran Bhangal & Annie Joyce)

Sky News Radio (with Kiran Bhangal & Annie Joyce)

October 13, 2020

Working with journalism students, Terry has learnt that there is no substitute for the experience of seeing a huge professional newsroom setting with 100+ people working inside, making the news happen. 

At Sky News, in their Osterley complex, they have one of THOSE newsrooms. And in one part of that newsroom, is the radio team. Amongst other things, that radio team is responsible for IRN, Independent Radio News, who provide 2 minute long hourly news bulletins for radio stations across the UK, 24 hours a day, all year round. Terry spoke with Kiran Bhangal & Annie Joyce (who produces the Sky News Daily podcast).

Social Media jobs are very important ones in radio now. Steve Ferdinando spoke with us about his role at Radio X as a Senior Social Media Editor, and how it links in with the brand and output of the station.
