Students at St Catherine’s Catholic School were given an insight into the world of BBC radio when executive producer Ruby Mulraine gave a talk at the school.
Ms Mulraine, an award winning executive producer at BBC Radio 1Xtra has had various jobs within the media industry and now owns her own company Black Music Canteen.
She gave a talk to 30 GCSE media students about her career working for various radio stations including kiss FM and the BBC as well as covering events such as Glastonbury, the MOBO awards, the Notting Hill Carnival and the Hackney weekend before setting up her own company Black Music Canteen.
The talk was timed to coincide with International Women’s Day on March 8. She said after it: “You have no idea how much I love doing these talks, I get so much from them.
“The questions students asked were some of the most intelligent and insightful I have ever been asked about my career. As I walked through the school I was so impressed by the way students related to each other in general conversation. They are amazing young ladies!”
