The Trireme -
BBC local radio

A trireme

The Trireme is awarded for what one freelance called the "worst terms since I was last chained to the oars".

This month’s nominee is a BBC local radio station, not paying a freelance at all to use interview packages.

There is a moral to this story. The freelance - who had a past association with the station - contacted them and asked "do you want..." and they responded "yes!" The freelance, however, omitted the essential next step: "and what will you pay me for that?"

So don’t do that, then.
