Recent graduate Erdem Koc

They’re back! Well, just for one evening at this stage.

A couple of years ago Erdem Koc and Ryan Witcombe were classmates in the then new subject Dilemmas in Journalism: Legal and Ethical Issues. Last semester Erdem completed his Law/Media degree while working as the  inaugural editor of upstart, before the year was out, he began his current gig as a full-time journalist at SBS radio. Meanwhile Ryan – who completed his Graduate Diploma in 2008 – has become the editor of a specialist  ‘third sector’ news site run by Pro Bono Australia.

To hear about how these two careers are unravelling, please join The Working Journalist class from 6:00 this evening(Wednesday) at the Learning Room (HU2 228). All undergraduate students are also most welcome to attend.
