Creative Media Lab - James Walshe

Hello folks,

Please find here details of the next Creative Media Lab guest lecturer - James Walshe, Deputy Editor for Practical Classics magazine, part of the Bauer Media stable out of Peterborough. 

EVENT: Creative Media Lab
DATE: Monday 18 January 2016
TIME: 6pm-7pm LOCATION: GH3.13
GUEST: James Walshe, Deputy Editor, ‘Practical Classics’ magazine

James has variously worked as a news reporter for both TV and radio; as a programme producer for commercial, independent production and BBC radio; management in commercial radio and print; and generally gets to spend his entire life doing things he loves - radio, music and cars. I'm sure he would be of interest to many of our LMS cohorts!

Combining his biggest loves in life – radio, music and fixing cars – James Walshe is a motoring journalist and radio producer. James’ career has taken him from the TV newsroom to the studios of commercial radio and BBC Radio 2 and now, to the workshops of Britain’s biggest selling classic car magazine.

He has previously seen how radio management teams operate from the inside in the post of Programme Director for a number of high profile UK commercial radio stations and has most recently left full time radio to focus on writing for motoring publications, taking up the role of

Deputy Editor at UK based Bauer magazine Practical Classics in 2015.
With occasional freelance work in radio still tempting James back from time to time, he spends most of his days restoring and driving his small collection of rubbish old vehicles. ‘I’m as happy writing about old cars as I am playing zoo keeper to a bunch of creative and fiery radio presenters.

It’s like being paid to do your hobbies’, says James. ‘The fact I often get to do both is absolutely fine by me, oddly enough.’
