As most of you will already be aware, Saddleworth News is under new management. Well, it is me who is the new editor of the website. I am a Digital Journalism student from UCO.
I chose to do my final year practical project on Saddleworth News as the area I am interested in pursuing a career in would be news journalism.
The final year practical project requires the student to work for a client to a professional standard. In my case I have to upload stories, monitor comments and check emails. Every week I am aiming to publish two articles, although in some instances it may be more, depending on time constraints and stories needing urgent attention.
During my time as editor I will be trying to get involved within the Saddleworth community, I’m sure you will all make me feel welcome!
If there are any ideas you have for the site, or any changes you would like to see please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
