Senior Café with Krishnan Guru-Murthy

On 24th January, we were treated to a fascinating Senior Café talk from Channel 4 news presenter, Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

Krishnan Guru-Murthy 2He explored the nature of news reporting in a world where most people under 30 don’t get their news from the television or print media, told us more about the day-to-day aspects of his role as a news journalist, and shared his path into journalism. The audience were surprised to learn that he landed his first TV job, presenting Newsround, in his third year at university and were most impressed by the array of people he has interviewed! Krishnan enjoyed the insightful questions from those listening, and it was one of the most interesting 45 minutes I have spent at LEH in the last two years.
