Budding Rockhampton journos take to the online screens

MOVE over Richard Wilkins.

Bringing Central Queenslanders all the goss from tinsel town, and from around the globe, it's aspiring journalists and CQUniversity students Sean Fox and Geordi Offord.

The second-year journalism undergraduates, who are 19 years old, are about to sweep social media sites with a new web series called The Week That Was, summarising what's happening in the world of entertainment.

Sean and Geordi are great mates.

They shared a few ideas about the showbiz and entertainment realm and eventually decided to put together this personal pet of theirs.

Their first episode will "go to air" on Friday. It will be filmed from the comfort of a study room at the university.

They will include in their segments a profile piece on a famous recording artist and their first artist profile isone of the biggest selling female recording artists in history.

Sean said he and Geordi wanted to focus on Madonna this week, to coincide with possible Australian tour dates announcements.

Entertainment is been a passion of Sean and Geordi's.

Sean in particular hopes to crack the big time and report live from a major Hollywood event. He was also eyeing up reporting on entertainment in national television.

However Sean hasn't just set his bar on television. A keen writer, he said he would even consider a career in print or writing.

Geordi said she was also keen to get into the journalism industry.
