findaTVexpert is helping the BBC Academy search for female experts who want to take part in television and radio programmes that are made in the North of England.
The BBC Academy in conjunction with BBC North is holding a FREE training day for women with particular expertise who are interested in appearing on television, on radio and online as contributors or presenters.
This is the culmination of a season of BBC North events designed to support the development of on-air talent. This event helps boost the representation of women in the media and follows on from Expert Women’s Day events held by the BBC Academy in London.
Do you have industry-recognised expertise in any of the following areas?

If you do, and you can be in MediaCityUK, Salford, on Wednesday May 1 2013 – then the BBC wants to hear from you.
This free day is being held to help boost the representation of women in the media in these particular areas of specialty.
