Podcasters interview Lucy Meacock


The Eaton Bank podcast team have enjoyed an exciting trip to Granada studios to interview TV presenter Lucy Meacock. The podcasters received their special invitation after meeting Ms Meacock at the Cheshire Schools Awards and impressing her with their journalism skills.

Four lucky podcasters were randomly picked to attend the trip: Year 9 students Molly-Mae Hodson, Eady-Beau Williams, Evie Wilson and Hollie Hendry (Year 8) . The students travelled to Media City to interview their star guest and recorded a 30 minute podcast chatting about changes in the media, the importance of regional news and how to start a career in journalism. As part of the trip, the students also experienced a tour of the TV studio, met some of the production team and watched a live recording of the lunch time news. The whole experience was fantastic and the students were hugely appreciative of how generous Lucy Meacock was with her time.
