An alternative hourly news bulletin will soon be available from a team of journalists setting up a new company, Radio News Hub.
The service is aimed at English speaking radio stations both home and abroad and launches early in 2015, providing a 60 second bulletin Monday to Friday 6am to 7pm, delivered online.
Stations also have the option of adding twice daily sport, showbiz and business bulletins – along with a classified football results package on a Saturday afternoon.
Jamie Fletcher (ex Real Radio & Sky Sports News Radio), Stephanie Otty (ex The Pulse & Sky Sports News Radio) and Jon Francis (ex Teamtalk & Sky Sports News Radio) are among the on air team stations will hear providing updates.
Director Jamie Fletcher said: “We’re really excited about providing stations both home and abroad with a quality news service. We’re passionate about news and we’re passionate about radio. Our bulletins will reflect what is happening in listeners lives”
Radio News Hub bulletins will contain national content – and will be supported by social media that client stations can tap into.
Business consultant Dave Uttley said: “I’m really excited by this project. We want to offer clients a quality service – but at a competitive and affordable price. We believe that we offer great value for money.”
Bulletins will available to download each hour for client stations – with a dedicated IT expert – Dexter Pearson – on hand to offer support to stations around the clock.
