As part of my university course I was required to undertake a professional work placement, In January-March 2018, I spent three months with At The Races in Milton Keynes at their studios and production office. Whilst there I learnt how the channel operated and worked in the role of a researcher/assistant producer.

RACING POST

2018-2019

In July 2018, I shadowed Lewis Porteous & Graham Dench at Brighton and Sandown respectively. I learnt how they gathered stories on a raceday and collect the information to produce a report under strict deadlines. At Sandown I interviewed bookmakers & punters about a wrong result in a photofinish. The quotes I received were used as part of a wider racing story.
For further experience in January 2019 I spent a week at the Racing Post head office in London. During this time I was based with Katherine Fidler as part of the features team. I also produced and researched statistics on the Cheltenham Festival for Stuart Riley as well as overseeing the creation of Postcasts.
