Covering the official announcement that Peter Capaldi would be the next Doctor.
After being given an ongoing assignment to cover various news beats for Yahoo! TV UK, I watched the lead-up to the official Doctor Who announcement with great anticipation. The news was finally revealed during a 1-hour TV special, but due to the show’s weekend time slot, staff writers were not on hand to cover the news.
Taking initiative, I decided to cover the story and published the news within minutes of the announcement. The article received many thousands of views and was widely shared via social media.
Note: Unfortunately, due to changes to the Yahoo! TV UK CMS, the article is no longer online. However, a screenshot is included below.
