Reporter Ben makes BBC Breakfast debut to share view on social media

Wow! We are still smiling about mini reporter and Media Cubs board member, Ben, making his debut on BBC Breakfast! 

Ben was invited to share his views on a recent Ofcom report that found the way younger people are consuming the news is changing: with many turning to TikTok rather than traditional outlets to get their news fix.

Ben did a fantastic job and is destined for a career in the media- he now has his heart set on it after this experience at Media City.
It was the full shebang, green room, hair and makeup, tour of BBC studios, and then on the RED sofa with Naga and Charlie.
He was awesome! And we feel so proud!
