António Fernandes

Portuguese journalist living in London.

After taking a BA in Communication Studies in Lisbon, I moved to London to pursue a MA in Radio at Goldsmiths College back in 2013. 

Since then, I've been working as freelancer:

- Freelance Researcher at The Listening Post, Al Jazeera English media analysis show. My duties include assisting the producer on the show’s lead piece (looking for possible voices to address the subject, general research about the subject chosen for the show and booking interviews). (currenttly)

- Freelance Sound engineer at Monocle 24, where my main tasks involve recording and editing audio, mixing packages, running pre-recorded and live music hours, as well as outputting live shows at the station. (currently)

- Intern at CNN's Features, working as an assistant producer. Main tasks involved assisting producers with research and logistics in preparation for tasks, as well as pitching ideas for features. (April-July 2015)

- Audio editor at Live@Wimbledon, the Championships official radio (2014)

While keeping across what's making the news, my main strength are research and analysis on topics that relate with the Portuguese speaking world. I also provide translations.
