The BBC Radio 1 Academy kicked off their tour of Hull today at Malet Lambert,speaking to Year 10 about careers in sports journalism.
The aim of the tour is to inspire young people to consider careers in the creative arts, and inform them of different pathways to take.
Pupils had the chance to ask questions and hear advice and guidance from industry professionals.
BBC Radio 1 and CBBC presenters Cel Spellman and Katie Thistleton led the event, introducing special guests from the world of sports news - Colin Patterson, Sports News Output Editor for BBC Sport, Ian Moss, Assistant Editor and Trainer, BBC Sport, and Nick Rotherham, BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra news reporter.
Nick, Chris, and Ian spoke about their love for sports journalism and how hard they fought to forge a career in this area.
Nick, who is originally from Hull, described his rise to national broadcasting to pupils.
He said, "I decided when I was a teenager that I wanted to write about sports - well, I wanted to follow Hull City all over the country!
"I did some work experience for the Hull Daily Mail, Viking FM and BBC Radio Humberside before moving down to London. I worked at Asda while I tried to get my foot in the door with production companies.
"Eventually, after knocking on lots of doors of production agencies, pretending I had a meeting with them, someone appreciated my initiative and gave me a job for two weeks. Everything started there.
"My advice if you want to make it in the industry is keep trying. That's what I did. Just keep trying."
BBC Radio 1 Academy will be visiting other schools in Hull throughout the rest of their tour, culminating in a five-day residency at The Albemarle Music Centre, offering a variety of workshops and industry insight.
