The life of a journalist - Julian Knight

By Ian Courts - Posted on 07 July 2014


Julian is well known in Solihull as a politician, but that was not the subject of his highly illuminating talk to Solihull Rotary Club: rather his very career in journalism, ending up as an editor with the Independent. Julian is most definitely a self-taught person and he explained how he really did have to learn on the job. He went on to contrast the task of a specialist journalist, who needs to develop a longer term relationship, with the news journalist, where content can vary from day to day. Julian wrote his first book 10 years ago and has written six books in total, a magnificent achievement. Club members were both entertained and impressed by Julian's life and achievements.
