Phantom Media is Done and Dusted
Meet The Phantom – your new look student newspaper that has replaced Dusted Magazine. The newspaper is part of a overall rebrand of student media here at the University of Derby Students’ Union, bringing everything under one media organisation known as Phantom Media. This means that d:one is now Phantom Radio and we’re launching a brand new TV channel known as Phantom TV, giving students more opportunities to get involved in media and journalism whilst studying.
As a Union we feel it is important to give students plenty of options to do something outside of the lecture theatre that will not only be a fun experience but will give them an advantage in the competitive graduate job market. For all those budding journalists studying at Derby, Phantom Media is a great way to gain experience in print, radio and tv
The decision to combine all student media operations into one media group is to align what we do with mainstream media, for example The Guardian Media Group not only publishes The Guardian and Observer, they also produce a huge amount of video and audio content for their website and other outlets. By making our media more akin to that of national media we believe that students will be better prepared if they go on to look for work in journalism or media organisations after graduation.
