In a journalism career spanning over 30 years, I have done nearly every kind of job, from news reporter to bureau chief, from editing and commissioning to running a team of reporters.
I have spent three years based in Jerusalem and helped the South African Jewish community relaunch its newspaper. I have edited and commissioned a colour magazine and won several awards for my journalism. Among my awards are two from the Newspaper Society and I also won the Catherine Pakenham Prize for young women journalists.
I’ve interviewed major celebrities and been a media commentator on UK radio and TV, including Sky, BBC (News 24,The World Tonight), and many BBC local radio programmes. The only thing I haven’t done is sport – but I’d be willing to try.
