St Thomas

Our speaker was Joanne Watson, retired BBC Sports Producer.

Farnham resident Joanne spent more than 30 years working for BBC sport. Her latter career saw her as the Major Events Planning Editor for Radio Sport. During her time the relationship between Sport and the Media changed dramatically. The influence of mega million pound contracts, millionaire backers and the expansion of digital media means the sporting landscape is now very different, but is it all for the better? Joanne worked on the London Olympics, Wimbledon, Football, Rugby and Cricket World Cups.
