The former journalist and editor said: “In an age of fake news, the need for qualified journalists, professionally trained to the highest of standards, has never been greater.

“The NCTJ’s world-class training scheme is leading the way and it is a real honour to join the NCTJ board, having started my own career by training as a journalist with the NCTJ in Cardiff.”

Kim Fletcher, chairman of the NCTJ, said of Anderson: “Here’s someone who knows the media world from every angle, understands all the big issues of the digital era, can write a story, a speech or a press release, market a business and read a balance sheet.

“Her contacts book is pretty good too. I guess that’s what comes of making a good start in life with an NCTJ qualification.”
