CV

ABOUT ME:

I run joshbuckf1.com independently and have done so since the end of the 2018 season. The aim of my blog is to allow me to create articles about something that I have a huge passion for and to help me within the world of journalism. I aim to one day become a presenter following Formula One wether that be with a company or as a freelancer. My other passions include photography and graphic design. 

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCES:

7digital: During my week of work experience I was  taught how to use industry standard radio programs including Proteus and Dira Highlander. Whilst also going to the BBC broadcast house and Wogan House where I was allowed to use the programs (with guidance). And then given the opportunity to create my own radio piece to take away with me.

LoveSport Radio: Within the week I spent at LoveSport I was able to get a better understanding of the workings of a control room as well as get an in depth look at programmes such as Canva and Headliner. I was also introduced into IRN broadcasts.

 

Reprezent Radio: The week I spent at Reprezent Radio gave me an insight into how a radio station is run. Along with how a show is recorded and edited - gaining experience with programs including Wirecast and Final Cut Pro.

Hamworthy United Football Club: During my week at Hamworthy I was given the opportunity to interview both first team and reserve team managers and players (filmed) as well as write match reports on the two first team games I attended. At the end of the week I travelled up to Bristol with the first team to watch them play in the FA Cup.
