“I really wanted to get into radio broadcasting so working as a Look roving reporter gave me the opportunity to put those ambitions into practice. I learned how to plan the interviews, the questions I hoped to ask, but also to be ready if people said something I wasn’t quite expecting. I also learned aspects of post-production including editing skills. It was a great experience.” Ed, roving reporter.
