The North East Branch of Radio Academy has teamed up with the Royal Television Society to stage two events in the next couple of months.
The first is an evening with Sky news presenter Kay Burley on Tuesday Feb 18th at Sunderland University. Kay has just celebrated 25 years as a news anchor for Sky News and signed up for another five years.
Radio Academy will ask “What does it take for a woman to stay at the top for so long?” Kay, from Wigan, once worked for Red Rose in the early 80’s and is a former presenter at Tyne Tees TV. She will also replay video from some of her more controversial moments while highlighting what it takes to remain on top.
The second event on Tuesday March 11th is the ‘Voice of God’ night, featuring Peter Dickson, the voice of X factor and Alan Dedicoat, voice of the balls and BBC Radio 2 Newsreader. The topic of conversation will be “Do you need a great voice to be a great voice over artist?”
Both events are hosted by former Radio Academy Chair John Myers. Booking is essential via the Radio Academy website nearer the time.
