    Journalism experience is there for the taking at Durham, which must have something to do with it.

    I think Durham might be good for a person's accent, too. As there's less locals than southerners, you're not around a certain accent, so you won't get a really southern accent that sounds posh "up north", and you might lose some of your southern accent if you're from there originally. You don't find many presenters with a really strong accent (and you're not going to get into national news if your voice makes you sound like a toff or a Geordie).
    my accent has become better spoken since coming to Durham apparently. My parents tease me about it every time I go home :emo:
