Sam Halligan

Multimedia Journalist

About

Hi, I’m Sam.

I am an aspiring journalist currently in my third year of studying Multimedia Journalism (BA Hons) at the University of Salford.

I have been writing regularly since I started college, contributing to my college blog most weeks, and it was my love for writing about music especially that led me to further my interest and ultimately decide to study journalism at University.

Although my work is generally print and online based, I have explored a range of platforms throughout my course; producing work across print, online, television, and radio and familiarising myself with software such as InDesign, Adobe Audition, and Avid.

I am a regular contributor to my University’s news platform ‘Quays News’, writing an array of¬†features, reviews and news articles over the past year.

I have also seen a range of work published on rochdaleonline.co.uk – my local towns news website – during a placement period which saw me thrown straight in at the deep end; going out into the field, organising and conducting interviews, and completing work to deadlines in order for it to be published in accordance with events.

Aside from my academic work, I enjoy listening to, creating, and discussing music. I began blogging about my musical interests last year, and it has helped me develop relationships with artists I regularly listen to – allowing me to conduct interviews and produce features on them.

Featured on this site is the majority of my work, my CV, and my contact details should you wish to contact me.

All the best.
