Journalism students join LJMU Chancellor Nisha Katona at Mowgli Dog Show

Five journalism students covered the Mowgli Dog Show this month, hosted by LJMU’s Chancellor Nisha Katona.

The dog show saw canines from across the region, taking centre stage, performing their tricks and helping to raise over £43,000 for Claire House Children’s Hospice. 

Former LJMU student and owner of Mowgli Street Food hosted the event which was reported on by LJMU journalism students as part of their studies. 

The students interviewed Nisha and other attendees at the event, created a montage of the event for social media and wrote up the news story for MerseyNews Live, LJMU’s journalism new site.  

MA Journalism student and recent graduate, Jack Kinsella, said:  

“Covering the event was fun and very insightful, our LJMU team gelled quickly, and the day offered us all more experience in creating journalism-based packages for online sites and social media content.  

“Having recently graduated with an MA in Journalism it was good to see skills useful in real world situations and create content for different audiences.
