It seems the BBC is taking steps to hold true to new Director General George Entwistle’s promise to give female presenters more opportunities at the BBC.
The Academy posting reads:
Are you a female expert who would like to be presenter?
Do you have industry recognised expertise in science, history, politics, business or engineering?
If you do, and you can be in London on Friday 18 January 2013, then the BBC Academy would like to hear from you.
We’re holding a free training day for women who are very interested in appearing on television, radio and online as presenters.
It’s taking place in association with findaTVexpert to help boost the representation of women as presenters in certain areas of the media, and will offer participants the opportunity to meet some of the UK’s leading media professionals.
To apply to attend, email your cv and a couple of paragraphs stating your unique selling point as a presenter to email@example.com. Please also state if you have any media experience.
Deadline for all submissions is Friday 16 November 2012.
Certainly sounds promising - let’s hope the BBC continues offering these kinds of opportunities and starts developing expert female voices with greater tenacity.
