There, he learnt how to produce news for television, radio and online and whilst studying, gained experience with local BBC News and national ITV News. Towards the end of the course, Will was recognised in local and national awards for Online Innovation (Midlands Media Student Awards) and TV news (BJTC Awards). Will graduated from university in September 2016. 

After completing his course in May 2016, Will joined the team at WhatsOnStage as editorial assistant the following month. Here, he wrote news and feature stories for the website, as well as reviewing and writing the occasional blog for the website. During his time at WhatsOnStage, he was able to work on video content at events such as the Olivier Awards, as well as interviewing stage stars such as Sir Mark Rylance, Tim Minchin, Olivia Williams, John Tiffany and Sir Tim Rice.
