A hall of fame, celebrating the success of BU Multi-media Journalism graduates was opened this week.
Featuring in the Media building of Bournemouth University’s Talbot Campus, the wall hosts a huge range of big names in the journalism industry who began their careers in the very building.
Mark Russell of GQ, Steven Corbett of The Sun, Sarah Farmer of the BBC, Ryan Lovejoy of Sky and Andy Jones, a highly successful freelancer all feature.
Senior Journalism lecturer Dan Hogan gave a short speech to mark the event.
“It’s not just about what happens when students are here. We want to celebrate the fact that our guys go on to greater things.”
He described a feeling of ‘great pride’ towards the graduates from the course, talking animatedly about each of the individuals pictured on the wall. The BAMMJ course has produced successful journalists who have gone on to work on a range of titles, including Nuts Magazine, GQ, Reuters and BBC. Hogan called the new installation “a permanent reminder of what we are about”.
