It is fantastic how busy professionals in the world of sports journalism are willing to give up some time and share their experiences with students who hope to follow in their footsteps.
Today at the University Eddie Hemmings and Neville Smith from Sky Sports delivered a brilliant two-hour session, telling my group of Year 3 students about the real life of an Outside Broadcast. Eddie is Sky's main presenter and commentator on rugby league; Nev is executive producer and director.
They extended an invitation to any of the students to join them at an outside broadcast this season and see how a sporting event comes to our screens. And that's why one student, commendably quick off the mark, is in Sky's OB truck at the Leeds v Wigan match as I write.
