2016 Editorial Team
2016 On The Record Student Executive:
Ashleigh Pisani – Editor Ashleigh Pisani is a journalism and international relations student. Growing up she toyed between wanting to be a journalist and wanting to be a lawyer. However, after the latter meant that she would actually have to study law, journalism became the clear favourite. She now dreams of becoming a political journalist (watch out Laurie Oakes!) or a media advisor.
Casey Lodge – Deputy Editor
Casey Lodge is a third year journalism student majoring in International Relations. Her dream job would be a UK broadcast correspondent, but if it all goes sour, she has a keen interest in joining the police force. Despite initially wanting to be an astronaut, Casey discovered journalism as a career after a teacher told her that her gift of the gab and relentless asking of “why?” would serve her well in front of the camera.
