My name is Péter Berecz, I am a student journalist and a university student. I am currently studying media and communication studies at Eötvös Loránd University.

On 13 February 2020, our documentary report co-produced with Bence Meggyes was released, starring Scott Kelly, the best-known astronaut in the United States. I participated in the film as a reporter.

In 2019 I graduated from Leövey Klára Secondary School. During my studies, my three friends and I founded a student television called LKG TV, which provided students with independent and up-to-date information for three years. Thanks to our school media, I conducted interviews and comprehensive conversations with many actors in the media industry and Hungarian public life, including Péter Kolosi, Ágnes Szabados or Péter Geszti.

In addition to my studies, I have been an intern at the ATV ’Heti Napló Sváby Andrással’ show (which is one of the most famous political show in Hungary) for two years now. Week by week, I actively help the work of the editorial office. In August 2018, the show aired our film report made together with Bence Meggyes.

I would classify myself as a ‘video journalist’ since, in addition to my journalistic work, I am also interested in the technical part of the profession (recording and editing). In addition to my ‘hard news’ type news coverage, I am really keen on infotainment program formats. Beyond the news, human interest and social topics are appealing to me. After my studies, I would like to get a job as a television journalist or broadcast editor.

In 2019, I won the Youth Press Award of DUE Media Network, which is awarded each year by the board of trustees to a student journalist they consider talented.
