So you wanna be a journalist?

This week’s Experimental Hour is ESSENTIAL listening for every wannabe journalist and P.R. hopeful out there: we’re talking the industry as a whole, how it’s changing, job prospects, the skills you need, managing relationships, political journalism, getting your foot in the door, student journalism and Bob Hawke in the nude! Tune in Saturday 12-1pm.

Featuring interviews with: Margaret Simons (media writer for Crikey and Director of Centre for Advanced Journalism at the University of Melbourne), Nic Christensen (‘Student Journalist of the Year’ 2009 and media writer at the Australian), and the legendary Barrie Cassidy (current host of ABC’s Insiders and former Press Secretary for Bob Hawke, 7.30 Report Political Editor, Washington Correspondent for the Australian).
