Female broadcast journalist, over 50, under valued? Move to China


Former BBC broadcast journalist Susan Osman has found a new job as a breakfast news presenter in China after feeling that she had hit the “silver ceiling” in the UK, The Guardian reports.

Osman claims that there is more respect for the older generation in China and that it is a great place for a 51-year-old female broadcaster to work – provided you don’t mention the private lives of politicals leaders, the Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests of 1989; or banned spiritual movement, Falun Gon.

Osman tells The Guardian: “I don’t think I have ever – ever – been treated with so much respect in a working environment..They listen, seem to admire me and seem to understand what changes I’m trying to bring here.”
