First, watch this clip. Less than a minute of your time, I promise it’s worth it!
Well here is the truth… at least my opinion, anyway.
Even though he wasn’t wearing a sleeveless shirt, his arms and that abs – to die for.
Oh who am I kidding? He’s perfect.
Hamish MacDonald’s crystal blue eyes and a smile revealing his perfect pearly white teeth is just as disarming as his earnest opinion on journalism. Ah, not to mention his lovely British-Australian English accent. I can listen to him speak until the world ends… I digress.
I had a chance to ask him a question after his presentation in The Hall at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane.
Me: What do you think is the biggest challenge in journalism today?
I think it’s what to do next. Your generation is shaping the everchanging media landscape and who knows what jobs will be available once you’re done here – maybe you’ll get a job that isn’t even invented yet. The challenge has always been to make something informative and appealing. But it’s always changing and you guys are in a unique position because you are organic users of technology and social media.
– Hamish MacDonald, Journalist and Host of “The Truth is…?”
His upcoming TV show on Channel 10 (Australia) is investigative journalism at its rawest form. It’s a bold take on controversial and bizarre issues that promises to make jaw-dropping revelations in an attempt to challenge the public’s perception of what is… the truth. (Whatever they think it is. Whatever you think it is)
Watch it on Monday nights at 8:30 pm.
