Kia ora. Mike Botur here from KiwiWords.
I’m trained as a reporter. My formative years were 2013-J2014 when I completed a Graduate Diploma in Journalism Studies. My university didn’t organise an internship for me, so I organised my own, getting in the door at the Herald on Sunday, then APNZ News Service, then NZME. / NZ Herald.
I appreciated the work very much.
What I would appreciate more is if the NZ Herald website archived published articles better! Okay I know they are probably NZ’s busiest publisher, publishing probably 1000 webpages a day, that’s understandable. It’s just hard to search on the Herald website for my lovely journalism work – behind which there was so much sweat.
Anywho, thanks to Google News I’ve pulled up some cool stories that had a lot of hard work behind them. This is for everyone who’s unsure if KiwiWords has journalism experience.
Oh yes I certainly do. Enjoy.
This a favourite – I love the cynical way the editor got me to report on it.
