IRN has launched a 24/7 breaking news video service to provide the countries biggest radio groups with news, entertainment and sports content for their websites.
The video service will be available on 175 station websites at launch on June 4th and rolled out to the rest of the 250 IRN network stations by the end of the summer. The service is offered free to stations in return for advertising on their website. The feed features both video and text stories of UK, world, sport and showbiz news.
Jon Godel, Editor of IRN & ITN On said: “This is a very exciting time for radio. We’ve been moving our radio and our video teams closer together for some time preparing for this moment.”
John Perkins, Managing Director of IRN added: “This is one of the most significant developments for IRN for many years. The fact that ITN is the supplier means we can guarantee the content will be of the highest quality editorially and visually.”
