He is answering a question posed by Birmingham City University’s Paul Bradshaw – with recent job freezes/cuts at UK newspapers, is there any point in universities running journalism degrees training students for the newspaper and broadcasting industries?

    Er, well I didn’t actually ask that question. I was suggesting that journalism degrees might rethink their objective of preparing students for the newspaper and broadcasting industries. Journalism jobs are now equally – if not more – likely to come from elsewhere: startups, blog networks, nonprofits, and the students themselves if they have any entrepreneurial nous.

    Sorry Paul, corrected now.
