And for my next trick…

Finally I can share my news. I still can’t quite believe it myself but, in potentially the biggest blag of my career so far, I have managed to get myself a job in TV. Not only in it – but potentially on it! I may have to issue a blanket ban on widescreen when that day comes.

The fact that I have absolutely no experience in either TV production or presenting is apparently not a problem (I was brutally honest about that; there’s artful blagging and then there’s downright career suicide). I start in early September. I was petrified of telling my boss but he seems to have accepted the fact, although he did send a note round the team today saying that someone else would be taking on my current role ‘with immediate effect’ so I guess it kind of sounds like he’s fired me. Still. No more print deadlines! Hurray!

No print deadlines, just daily television deadlines. No problem. ;)

Congratulations - I'm envious and slightly jealous of the artful blag and the huge amount of charm and confidence you must have presented to blag that role! (PS: need a tech expert? ;))
