UKRD station Pirate FM has started producing a daily sponsored video news service.
The first edition, published this morning, was presented by Head of News Tristan Hunkin and featured three of the stories being featured on-air, filmed at Pirate FM’s Cornwall Newscentre in Redruth.
It contains daily weather and surf conditions and is hosted on YouTube. See the first one above or click here.
“Pirate FM News has a long history of breaking news first on-air and online. We’re proud to be moving on screen too.” says Tristan.
“We’ll be ensuring viewers can always watch the latest bite-sized bulletins and promise to keep the cat videos to a minimum.”
Mark Peters, Pirate FM’s Managing Director said: “The way people consume information in 2014 is vastly different to even 5 years ago. Video news is just one of the many new products and services in the digital arena that the Pirate Brand is to offer, the great ROI that businesses enjoy from Pirate FM is now available through online channels too.”
