Lover of stories wins WA trophy
WATCHING AND LISTENING REAPS REWARD
REMEMBER the face pictured below – the next place you see it could be CNN.
South Perth resident Kyle Brown was recently awarded the Outstanding Journalism Student prize at the WA Media Awards.
Mr Brown (27) studied media at Murdoch University and broadcasting at Edith Cowan University.
“Listening and watching people sharing their stories, about their struggles and triumphs was always fascinating,” he said.
“A part of me really connected with that idea and I wanted to be part of helping find those stories.”
At the moment, he is finishing his studies and working as a freelancer, but said his dream job would be as a foreign correspondent for CNN or as a current affairs talk show host.
Community Newspaper Group had an outstanding night, with Emma Young from Comment News winning Best Suburban Reporter and Jon Hewson from Mandurah Coastal Times winning Best Suburban Photographer.
