UTV Managing Director gives talk to MA students

Michael Wilson, Managing Director UTV, recently took time out to meet with students at the University of Ulster. The media chief gave a talk and ran a workshop on April 30th for the MA Film and Television Management and Production course at Coleraine.

Along with Nikki Orr, Scheduling Manager at UTV, Michael explained what challenges are currently faced in the digital age, and how ethical issues are addressed in busy newsrooms.

The students, who have benefited from a range of professional speakers throughout their course, were able to take part in role-play decision making and welcomed the opportunity to hear two of the local broadcasting scene’s most important players.
