ITV News Central opens its doors for CDN Open Day

ITV News Central opened its doors to the next generation of journalists and broadcast engineers when students looking to find out more about the industry were invited into the newsroom.

Under a Creative Diversity Network initiative, regional and national newsrooms of ITV, BBC, Channel 4, Sky and CNN held workshops to highlight the range of skills needed for news production.

There has been a huge amount of enthusiasm across the broadcasters to offer a really enjoyable and informative day, with real access and insight, demonstrating a joint commitment across all members to open our doors to aspiring journalists from under-represented backgrounds.
