I thought it was worse than what I thought it would be.

Another SchmEcho report, another crap piece of geography. Diana Street, a stone's throw from Goodison Park, described as in "Everton".

I was nearly as upset by the shite reporting as by the actual event it was describing.

The Echo is a joke. Constant stories about murder and robbery with a splash of the Beatles.

Daily Post N Wales

Didn't take long for TMNW to start laying off staff after their comment that 'the vibrant North Wales Daily Post' will remain untouched. An acquaintance of mine who works there was told on Thursday he has to re-apply for his job against two colleagues. Have these cuts been mentioned in the media anywhere?

I know I've posted this in the other thread too, but it made sense putting it in here as well.

Bay TV Liverpool announces Local TV plans
Wednesday 14 December 2011



Bay TV Liverpool has confirmed to How-Do that it will be bidding for the Liverpool Local TV licence, as outlined by the Culture Secretary yesterday.

The online television offering was officially launched a month ago by co-founders Chris Johnson of Mercury Press and Chris Kerr, the former head of Granada TV in Liverpool.

"It has long been our ambition to have a local TV station for Liverpool and we've been looking at ways to do that for more than five years,” Johnson told How-Do.

"Initially, we were planning to operate Bay TV Liverpool on Sky Digital and we developed a detailed business plan that demonstrated how it could work.

"In 2008 we came very close to pulling that off but unfortunately, the credit crunch made it difficult for us to proceed and with the recession that followed we had to re-think our plans.”

Echoing the sentiments of Jim Booth, the founder of Ribble TV, which will be bidding for the Preston licence, Johnson argued that not only was there a market for hyperlocal television, but it would be financially viable:

"Local TV is going to be a great success in the UK, not least because it will offer a new advertising medium to local and regional businesses at moderate rates.

"Our research also shows that there is also a big demand for TV stations that carry programmes with an appeal to the local audience.

"You only have to look at BBC North West and Granada to see that they are only able to scratch the surface of what goes on in Liverpool.

"Local TV stations will have the ability to really engage with the areas they serve. They will connect with their audiences, very much like local radio has, and will make a really positive contribution to the civic and culture life of a city like Liverpool.”

Bay TV Liverpool has made a formal expression of interest to the Department of Culture Media and Sport and confirmed that it was talking to “a number of interested parties” as it puts together its bid for the franchise.

And some information on the bidder;

The missus watches it, albeit from behind a cushion and what I've seen, and she agrees is that if could snip out the bits where there's any of the "stars", there's some amazing external shots of town, looking great, especially the night shots. The programme is pretty dire though

All the filming has been done just in the L1 area which is a little strange and yeah it is pretty crap.

I watched a bit of it the other day and it was not as bad as I thought it would be.

What stands out to me is that the whole thing must be done on a shoestring. The limited number of cameras, in some scenes its like watching a tennis match with editing of the shots, is matched by the limited acting.

Here's the website of another organisation which is bidding for the local television station license for Liverpool and the wider City Region:

Does anybody think TMNW have missed a trick by having the Daily Post as a weekly that comes out on a Thursday rather than a Sunday? I'm sure there is some kind of logic to the Thursday but as the SchmEcho does not run on a Sunday I thought it would make sense for that hole to be plugged by its "sister paper". But, then again, I know little of the newspaper industry other than what I read.

A Sunday type supplement sounds like a good idea, but wasn't there an attempt at a north west Sunday paper about 10 years ago which bit the dust in a short amount of time? I'm looking forward to seeing the new Daily Post, if it's done well it might be for the best it's no longer daily. I hope it has staples in the middle to cut down on litter (something I'd make compulsory for all newspapers).

Anyone else buy a copy of the new Liverpool Post? It's an improvement I think, it feels like there is enough news in it now and it has a chance to round up the weeks events as well as providing listings and stuff for the weekend.

Just about to sit down and read it. Layout etc exactly the same as the old Daily Post. Sadly, there are no staples

I would still be more likely to buy it if it was on a Sunday, but might try and track down a copy.

I always thought the most recent Daily Post was just too thin on the ground to justify the daily cost.

Bought a copy of the new Post yesterday and I am very impressed.

I urge you all to try the new version, I am sure it will surprise one or two.

Do you mean "stocked it" or "had it in stock"? In the latter case it depends how quickly they sell out. I saw copies remaining in the Castle St Spar on Friday night for example.
