Performing arts student James Hofstetter saw what goes on behind the headlines when he was selected to attend a Channel 4 Talent day.
James, 17, of Liversedge, is currently studying at the Creative and Media Studio School in Huddersfield.
Business broker Sarah Timblerley said: “It was an amazing opportunity. James came back from the day absolutely enthused. He got a chance to break down news stories and present as a broadcast journalist which was great fun!”
He has been invited back to help at next year’s event and will attend a work placement with Channel 4 in the autumn.
