Annual Media Futures event for students launches

MediaFutures2007, a new annual careers event for media students and school-leavers in the mid-west, will launch on Thursday, April 12th in Limerick. A day-long seminar and workshop will be held at the Clarion Hotel and will bring together guest speakers from the Irish radio, television and newspaper industries to share with aspiring media students the benefit of their wisdom.

Hosted by RTÉ 2FM presenter Ruth Scott, Media Futures 2007 will see presentations from key national, regional and local media figures including presenters from RTÉ, TV3 and Live 95FM with more still to be announced.

The event will also prove interesting to those anxious to learn more about Spin South-West’s plans – the new station’s CEO Aevann Upton has agreed to do a presentation on the day. Other guest speakers include RTÉ 2FM’s Will Leahy and Limerick’s Live 95FM CEO David Tighe.
