A passion for one’s job is required to enjoy and prosper in the respective field. That passion is what drives people to do better every day in their lives. When you are passionate about your work, no job seems to be difficult, rather, it is enjoyable. Lucky are those who recognize their passion and make a career out of it.
Sky News reporter Stephen Dixon is one of those lucky handfuls. From his early age, he knew he wanted to be in journalism one way or the other. He graduated BA majoring in Broadcast Journalism from Nottingham Trent University when he was 21.
He later received Doctor of Letters from his alma mater and he is also the President of the Alumni Association of Nottingham Trent University. Moreover, he has a Doctor of Arts from The University of Bedfordshire. He received it at the age of 42 — double the age of his first graduation.
42-year-old Dixon has been chasing his dreams for more than two decades now. His first broadcasting stint was back in 1995 when he was broadcasting breaking news as a presenter and journalist with Radio Trent. He broke the “Abbie Humphries missing baby” story for the Independent Radio News network.
And since then, there has been no looking back for this charming reporter.
One of the highlights today for me was walking through Windsor and meeting so many lovely people. Thanks so much for taking the time to say hello. When you tell me you enjoy the show it really does make my day. ????????— Stephen Dixon (@skystephen) 19 May 2018
