Joshua Wilde

Bournemouth University, UK

Josh Wilde has recently completed the second year of a Multimedia Journalism degree at Bournemouth University in England. He is particularly interested in this year's theme having researched the proliferation of fake news on Twitter as part of his degree. He sees the Academy as a great opportunity to discuss the challenges facing journalism in what some now call a 'post-truth' era. Alongside his academic studies, Josh currently freelances for Press Association Sport and Sportsbeat. His match reports have featured on the BBC, Sky, and in The Football League Paper, a national print title. Josh has conducted a number of interviews with public figures and broke a national chemical incident story. He has won three University awards for his writing and broadcast work. Josh is keeping his future options open but would relish the chance to work in television or news documentaries.
