A WORK experience visit to one of the UK’s biggest broadcasters was a dream come true for one Herefordshire student.

Chris Stonadge, a sixth form student at John Kyrle in Ross-on-Wye recently visited Sky Sports for a week, and was left feeling a kid in a candy shop.

“I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Sky Sports News studios in Osterley, Isleworth via a mutual contact of a friend – a presenter, John Paul Davies.

“He had presented on said show for 13 years, since I was four.

“I’m not sure anybody with my background could really ready themselves enough for it. I was like a kid in a candy shop, my jaw dropped at sheer reality.”

Chris added his visit reaffirmed his hunger and drive to write and produce written and audio content during his last eight weeks at college in Ross-on-Wye.
