The Editor of the Courier is responsible for student-led media at the Students' Union. This primarily covers our newspaper The Courier as well as radio station NSR (student radio) and production team NUTV (film & production team). Within the role, the Editor oversees a team of over 50 sub-editors and a vast radio and production team. In recent years, the efforts of the Editor and their team have been showcased in winning numerous national awards for leading student journalism in The Guardian Media Awards.
I came to Newcastle for a degree in Journalism, but I stayed for The Courier, our incredible student newspaper. A strong interest in games media meant that I quickly found myself writing for The Courier's Gaming section. Before long, I was a Gaming sub-editor, and then a part of the senior team. There, my interests shifted from the subject of video games to the task of helping people better engage with their own interests through this creative medium. Now, I feel blessed to say that I'm the custodian of our wonderful Student Media community.
