Two in running for BBC sports placement

Two first year journalism students have been selected to attend an afternoon of talks and master classes with the BBC Sports Personality of the Year (SPOTY) team at Mediacity, Salford.

Luke Salvin-Hughes and Joe Diamond are now in with a chance to win a three week placement as a runner on the programme, widely regarded as the most prestigious and respected sports show on British television.

The two, who were chosen after submitting a short report on their favourite Olympic or Paralympic moment, could also be offered an opportunity to work with the BBC Sport Outreach team in London.

The master class event on November 1 will be hosted by BBC North’s Outreach manager Shelley Alexander, along with SPOTY executive editor Carl Doran and producer Chris Grubb.
