BBC Young Reporter Day
6th March 2019
Each year, the BBC runs an event called ‘BBC Young Reporter’. This is an opportunity for students across the country to showcase their journalistic skills.
As part of this, six students from Cliff Park Ormiston Academy were selected from a tough application process to experience life as a sports commentator at the BBC Radio Norfolk studios in Norwich.
Students were shown around the studios at The Forum, Norwich before having a go at commentating upon recent sporting events, including rugby, football and athletics. After sharpening their skills, the students performed their commentaries live on BBC Radio Norfolk’s ‘The Social’ with the help of the host, Jay.
The live show can be heard on the BBC iplayer at: www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p070xgsk
