Journalism students at the University of East London received career advice from ITN newsreader Charlene White.
Ms White, who presents weekend bulletins for ITV News and ITV News London, spoke to the budding reporters about the joys and challenges of television news.
The students were set a brief to design a six-story running order for various news programmes and then write 45-second introductions for a lead story and deliver them to camera.
Charles Lambert, UEL’s senior journalism lecturer, said Ms White’s story of working two jobs while building contacts in TV news amazed the students.
He added: “It clearly made a massive impact on our journalists of the future.”
