UK journalist and broadcaster Ranvir Singh has been appointed as the third Chancellor of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
Ranvir was officially welcomed at a special inauguration ceremony at Preston Guild Hall on 20 January.
“I am deeply honoured to be given the chance to lead the charge for a great place of learning, a place that hones passions, and propels young people out there to think big, and put those feelings and desires into action,” she was quoted in a news report on the university’s website.
The 39 year old journalist completed her post graduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism in 2000 at the same university.
Apart from regularly appearing on ITV’s news shows, Singh also presents her own prime time series for ITV called ‘Real Stories with Ranvir Singh’.
