Biography :
Writing and broadcasting have been my job since 1985. Way back then I joined the BBC as a Production Assistant but soon made the leap to Researcher and up the ladder to Senior Broadcast Journalist. At the BBC I started in the Radio Financial Unit working on Money Box, Financial World Tonight and In Business. Later I moved over to TV working on Business Breakfast, Working Lunch and World Business Report among others, ending up as Planning Editor for the Business and Economics Unit.
After 20 years I set up my blog Catherine’s Cultural Wednesdays focused on Arts, Culture and Travel. A bit of a leap from Business and Economics but I had done some travel writing moonlighting during the BBC years for The Independent and Rough Guides. Cultural Wednesday focuses on cultural travel (museums, galleries, UNESCO sites, great architecture, music) with an audience that tends toward the empty nest/early retirees with time and money to to spend.
