Cheshire Federation of WIs Zoom meeting with Dorothy Byrne
10th May @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
We feel privileged to be welcoming Dorothy Byrne. Dorothy Byrne is Editor at Large at Channel Four Television and President Elect of Murray Edwards at Cambridge University. During her tenure as Head of News and Current Affairs, the Channel’s news and current affairs programmes have won numerous BAFTA, RTS, Emmy Awards and others. Dorothy began her career in the 1980’s when it was rare to be a woman in a man’s world. Throughout her almost 4 decade’s long career she has fought for women’s issues to be given equal weight and broadcast time. She was made a Fellow of The Royal Television Society for her “outstanding contribution to television” and has received wide recognition for her work. She is a former World In Action producer and editor of ITV’s The Big Story. Before joining Channel 4 she also produced arts programmes and executive produced
history series for the channel. In addition, she is a published author – her first book, ‘Trust Me I’m Not a Politician’ was published in 2019 and she has also contributed to various books on media ethics and regulation. She is a trustee of the Ethical Journalism Network which supports the development of ethical codes in journalistic organisations across the globe. We feel this is an evening not to be missed!
