What exactly is it that you do?
It’s my job to find, develop and produce original news and current affairs stories for TV – stories you’ve never heard of before that can make it to ‘front pages’. These are usually stories that are difficult to tell and to uncover. People might be reluctant to talk, information deliberately obscured or hidden and there are often challenging legal problems.
