Since graduating in 2006, TV producer John Hiscock has enjoyed a meteoric rise which has seen him produce interviews with A-list stars including Britney Spears, David Beckham, Mariah Carey, Angelina Jolie, Elton John, Julia Roberts and Ringo Starr.
His career began with a month-long placement at GMTV before he graduated with a BA(Hons) in media. He said: “I well and truly caught the live TV bug and became determined to pursue a career in that direction.
“Upon graduating I secured a position on a GMTV training programme and although the title of the show has changed over the years I'm still working for ITV's breakfast show 10 years on.
“It was the work placement in the media industry that first drew me to the course in Brighton. My time spent at the university was some of the most fulfilling of my life and I have nothing but fond memories. The dedication and enthusiasm from the staff was infectious and they helped me to believe in myself and focus my mind towards a career.”
