Freelance BBC reporter Adam Kirtley, in effect, promoted his wife’s public relations clients when interviewing students at Cranbourne Business and Enterprise College, for which his wife’s company does publicity, the Guardian reported.

BBC said Kirtley made an “error of judgment” in interviewing people with whom he had a conflict of interest, according to the Guardian story. Apparently, there was no disclosures of the conflict of interest in Kirtley’s BBC report.

Kirtley’s wife, Siobhan Hand, is the managing director for Wizard Publicity, which lists the college on its website as a client.
