Hello from UCF journalists!

We would like to introduce ourselves as we have been given the great honour of putting together the WHYS programme on the 25th February 2010. We are MA International Journalism students at University College Falmouth, in Cornwall, UK.

Our course covers all aspects of multi-media journalism: print, radio, online and TV. Every week we collaborate on producing international current affairs programmes for radio and TV. We rotate the roles, with an editor leading the team each week and others in the roles of reporters, presenters, producers and technicians. We also have an online news website.

We hope to bring the skills we have learnt to producing a great programme with you!

…As well as our enthusiasm and individual interests of course!

There’s 11 of us and everyone has their individual areas of expertise which they bring to the team.

Jason– he’s our oracle on everything political with a specialist interest in the European Union.

Zoe– she’s our arts and culture correspondent with a passion for film, on a mission to review 100 films!

Edward– he served 5 years in the US Army, including 15 months in Iraq, and hopes to soon be back on the front lines as a war correspondent.

Rosalie– with an extensive background working for NGOs, she is our in-house expert on everything to do with animal protection and the environment.

Andy– he’s our technical wizz with a passion for UGC.

Shalin– a future foreign correspondent.

Polly – like presenter Ros, she grew up in Cornwall, but never stays in one place for too long – next stop South Africa in 6 weeks time!

Sofia– she’s our cross-platform content creator.

Rosie– she’s the health professional amongst us, always keen to shout about issues of the humanitarian kind.

Stefanie– she’s a well-travelled journalist specialising in Spain and Latin American affairs, as well as music & dance!

Alex- a polyglot pocket-rocket who loves sport, travel and culture.

    Great list of tag lines. I personally favor things that obscure my identity, like ‘lives alone with rabid mastiff’ but most magazines won’t go along. With such a team assembled, I expect scandals to be broken open and tyrants to fall in the heat of your hot little hands. Or at least give us a chuckle with some compromising nudie shots of Ros cast about on the net.

    If pictures speak a thousand words, you look like devotees of rugged journalism. Here’s the dilemma: When you get a death threat or get ambushed, it means you are on the right track with a story. Never figured that one out. Your good journalism will be our good luck, so good luck.

    All the best.

    Wish you luck;but, a note of caution !!!
    Make sure you do not get carried away and steer away from constructive journalism
    as opposed destructive one.,

    Young and expert team that you are. My attention would be to Stefanie, as she is the one connected with Latin America. I wonder if you really know what is happening in Mexico. Because we are neighbors to USA, History has marked us on many chapters. I hope that your information is real. The correspondents of USA are very cautious. I read a report from the Washington Post and it seems that the mexican government payed him for writing nice about the so called drug war. Did you know that in the office of Calderón there have been 18,000 deceases. And Obama said that in Mexico the pseudo president was an Elliot Ness. Again my congratulations for the team and I hope that open mind would be the subject to attain.
