If you’re aged 18-25 with limited media or broadcasting experience, this is your chance to be mentored by top journalists and produce your own local news report on issues that matter to you.

Media Trust, ITN and ITV News have launched Breaking Into News to offer budding broadcast journalists the opportunity to learn writing, reporting and production skills.

That means you could be working alongside familiar faces at UTV, learning valuable skills to help you get your start in the industry.
