Samuel Gould is a third year undergraduate journalism student at City University London. He is a news junkie, lover of music and blogger on the Everything Else Blog.
His professional experience stretches across the creative industries, as he has been the editor of a charity magazine, station manager of a student radio station and worked for a record label.
Leaving college with a BTEC in music wasn’t the most straightforward route into journalism, however Samuel’s creativity and technical understandings meant that perusing the media path was achievable. His passion for music has continued throughout his studies as he has written hundreds of music reviews on his music blog.
University has so far taught him not only skills and the history and politics of journalism, but has also allowed him to get a feel for working in print, online and broadcast mediums. He has learned media law and data journalism; skills and knowledge that had significantly helped his running of City OnAir during the 2013/14 academic year.
Ultimately, Samuel is working towards a job in broadcast news, whether it be in production or editorial, or on camera.
