BBC Radio 4 Extra – Newsjack

Newsjack the Radio 4 Extra topical news sketch show, which anyone can write for, is again looking for writers to submit sketches and one-liners for its 23rd series.

Trying to make sense of it all is host Kiri Pritchard-McLean.

Go to Newsjack’s Submission Page on their website for full details, advice, script templates and details of fees for material which is used on air.
