Manchester High School for Girls


On Wednesday 3rd May, 6pm to 7.30pm, the latest of our 'Insight Into...' careers sessions will take place in the Zochonis Lecture Theatre.

'Insight Into...Broadcast Journalism' is a must for any of our inquisitive, curious and determined girls who may be considering this highly competitive career path. We'll be joined by three MHSG alums, Eleanor Moritz, Lucy Radnor and Cathryn Yeates, who will talk about their routes in to the profession and how MediaCityUK has opened doors for Manchester-based talent.

The event is open to all students from Year 10 through to Sixth Form and we encourage parents to attend with their daughters. We expect this to be very popular, so please reserve your place with Miss Taylor in the Development Team: ltaylor@mhsg.manchester.sch.


Eleanor Moritz

Eleanor Moritz has worked at the BBC since 1987, when she started helping on BBC Radio Lancashire's sports programmes. After graduating from journalism college in Preston she worked at BBC Radio Lancashire full-time from 1988 to 1994. 

Eleanor undertook various roles at the station, including presenting and producing the Breakfast Show. She eventually became News Editor there. On leaving, Eleanor joined North West Tonight and is now Producer and Presenter. 

She always carries wellies and a waterproof coat since being caught in a situation, perhaps best forgotten, with a cow in a cowshed!



Lucy Radnor

Lucy Radnor left Manchester High School for Girls in 2006 and went on to study Broadcast Journalism at the University of Leeds.

Upon graduating she secured work as a news reporter at Rock FM, part of the Bauer Media group. 

From there, she moved to Key 103 as a news reporter and presenter, where, as well as working on content for new bulletins, she also hosted Paddy's Sunday Dinner with Paddy McGuiness for over three years. 

Lucy is currently a broadcast journalist for BBC Radio 5 Live


Cathryn Yeates

Cathryn Yeates studied Business Management at the University of Newcastle.

She started out as Production Secretary at ITV and, via three years at Capital FM, has returned to ITV as Production Co-ordinator for the Tonight programme. 

Airing every Thursday evening, Tonight is Britain's most popular current affairs programme, delivering compelling stories that get to the heart of what matters most to its viewers.
