Completed a Bachelor of Communication (Journalism) degree at The University of Newcastle in 2015, which I have been doing since 2013. Completed a Bachelor of Communication (Honours) degree in 2016 on a sporting/media topic, achieving an Honours Class II, Division I. Completed a Diploma in Communication and Media at Hunter TAFE in 2012. I have done work experience at The Maitland Mercury, NBN Television, and completed work placement for my Communication degree at 1233 ABC Newcastle. My life outside of study is watching/following sport, sport and more sport, and my aim/dream is to become a sports commentator, a sports journalist, a sports writer/columnist or a combination of those three. I have recently been an Intern-At-Large at 1233 ABC Newcastle, writing a number of sporting related articles, including a number of Olympic profile articles on Hunter-bred athletes competing in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, which have appeared on the 1233 ABC Newcastle website, and even on the ABC Grandstand website. I am keen to work and get involved in the media industry professionally in the near future. Any media organisations that might be interested in me working for them, or are interested in helping me in achieving my aims/dreams can contact me by email at ryan.eckford1@gmail.com (preferred), or at ryan.eckford@uon.edu.au and/or via my LinkedIn profile, http://au.linkedin.com/pub/ryan-eckford/94/532/678.
