Lover of sto­ries wins WA trophy

WATCH­ING AND LIS­TEN­ING REAPS RE­WARD

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Burswood South Perth -

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.
