Look and learn
Never one to miss a chance to say I told you so, I was delighted to see the East London Advertiser's Ted Jeory winning the weekly paper reporter of the year title in this year's Regional Press Awards.
I singled out the story that won it for praise in this blog months ago and suggested that all junior reporters read his account of how he did it and learn what real journalism is all about.
Still worth a read for those who missed it.
(I wasn't on the judging panel by the way).
