Jenkins to feature in journalism ethics debate taking place in Glasgow

A DEBATE about journalism ethics is taking place in Glasgow featuring the former head of news and current affairs at BBC Scotland, Blair Jenkins.

It follows publication of a report by Jenkins in February, ‘Better Journalism in the Digital Age’, published by the research and practice body, the Carnegie UK Trust.

Jenkins was more recently the chair of the Scottish Broadcasting Commission.

The event – being staged by the Trust in partnership with RSA Scotland and Strathclyde Business School – also features columnist and broadcaster, Lesley Riddoch, and investigative journalist, Eamonn O’Neill, who runs an investigative journalism course at the University of Strathclyde. Also appearing is John McLellan, until recently the editor of The Scotsman and editor-in-chief of Scotsman Publications.

It is taking place a week on Tuesday, May 22, at Strathclyde University, from 5.30pm.

Places are free and can be booked here.
