Charlotte Moore Presents the Steve Hewlett Lecture 2018
Conversation starts at 6.30pm
University of Westminster, 4-12 Little Titchfield Street, London W1W 7BY
The first 'Hewlett' in 2017 was delivered by Today presenter, Nick Robinson and raised issues about mainstream and social media. We are delighted that Charlotte Moore has accepted our invitation to deliver this year's lecture.
The annual scholarship fund for students of journalism from lower income backgrounds and lecture were jointly established by The Media Society and The Royal Television Society in memory of Steve who died in February 2017. This year two scholarships will be awarded.
BBC Director of Content, Charlotte Moore, said: "As we navigate our way through the seismic changes and challenges taking place in our industry, I often wish I could call on Steve for advice or to get his view on the latest takeover deal or Ofcom quota.
"Steve was never scared to ask difficult questions of the BBC and yet he was also our greatest champion and supporter. He believed passionately in British creativity and risk taking and in public service television. It’s an honour to be asked to give a lecture in his name."
Refreshments will be provided following the lecture. The RTS and Media Society would also like to thank the University of Westminster for making the venue available.
