Does TV News Have a Future?

NICK POLLARD, Former Head of Sky News, is coming to Coventry on 30th September to talk on the future of TV news in the first of a new series of Coventry Conversations.

Throughout these many years in the news, Nick has worked on such high profile stories as September 11th and the death of Princess Diana before his shock departure from Sky in 2006. He’s now coming to Coventry to discuss his career at a time when peoples News consumption was rapidly changing the world of TV News.

John Mair, inventor of the Conversations said:

“Nick is a master. He steered Sky news for a decade and gave it the deserved reputation it has now. He is revered by his peers in the TV news industry and hence, is the Chair of the Royal Television Society Journalism Awards juries. Coventry Conversations is very lucky to get him.”

If you want to hear for yourself what Nick has to say about TV news in all its glory, his lecture is taking place on 30 September in ETG34 at 1pm the following day Steve Cropley the editor-in-chief of Autocar will speak about Motoring on the box at the same venue.


All conversations, which are free and open to all, take place every Thursday at 1pm in ETG34, Ellen Terry Building, unless otherwise stated.
