Journalism students take note! Famed BBC presenter Huw Edwards, recipient of BAFTAs and presenter of the Six O'Clock news and the BBC's News at Ten since 2004, has published his Ten Top Tips on how to do what he does.

Among the obvious advice are tid-bits than anyone, except the thickest among us could figure out, such as "Get Some Work Experience" and "Focus on the Journalism". Because, you know, they hire just anyone off the street who looks like they can do it.

On the more practical side are things like "Become a reporter first and don't be in too much of a hurry" and "Work hard and remember that nobody is indispensable". Or "you have no job security, do it right or get fired" for those of us who do not think in platitudes.

What is sure to be most interesting however, are the items that come near the end "look smart and people will believe it" and "you have an image to uphold, practice looking like a smarmy ass."

Make Tre Droll's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
