thumb_014Z5075_1024Hi there. My name is Jack Gevertz and I am a 23-year-old broadcast journalism student, originally from Ilford, north-east London, but now based in Greater Manchester.

Aside from journalism, I enjoy learning new things and meeting new people. I also like to raise debate and discussion around important issues in society, particularly those of inequality and injustice.

In 2017, I was chosen for a place on the prestigious ITV News training scheme, which I did based at ITV News Meridian in Whiteley, Hampshire.

I have had my work published in The Guardian, The Daily Mirror, The Daily Telegraph and The Independent, and I have also made several media appearances on the BBC including on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio Sheffield, BBC Radio York and BBC Radio Leeds. I was also part of the BBC’s Referendum Generation 2016 project, which looked at young people’s views on the UK’s European Union referendum.

While studying for my politics undergraduate degree at the University of York, I wrote for York Mix, a leading online news website for the City of York. Prior to this, I was the editor-in-chief of York Vision, the UK’s most awarded student newspaper.

My work across student, local and national media has received three awards. In 2014, I won the Student Journalist of the Year Award from the National Union of Students (NUS), and in 2015, I won the Young Reporter of the Year Award from the Yorkshire O2 Media Awards. In 2017, I won the Best TV News Feature Award for my piece on homophobia in football.

Many thanks,
