For me, the 'rounding up the cultural stuff for the week ahead' factor is definitely a strength of this kind of weekly publication. If done properly, it can become a surrogate listings magazine, the easiest way of keeping your ear to the ground across a wide range of venues and scenes.

The Sheffield Telegraph - once the Morning Telegraph - was forced to become a weekly, with the support of a substantial property section, in 1989 and it remains a decent publication, far superior to the daily Sheffield Star. It's very similar to this new manifestation of The Post.

A relatively old story, but there was an article in the Echo recently about it.

'The Only Way Is Essex' producers planning Liverpool 'living soap' for ITV1
Published Thursday, Aug 25 2011, 11:50 BST



The production company behind The Only Way Is Essex is reportedly developing a Liverpool-based 'living soap' for ITV1.

If commissioned, the programme would be the first of the popular structured reality genre to move on to terrestrial TV, Broadcast reports.

Lime Pictures has issued casting calls and is currently carrying out extensive research in the city, with businesses targeted for the project apparently including Tying the Knot. The company, which featured in My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, provides owls which deliver wedding rings to couples as they walk down the aisle.

"Lime is developing a 'real drama' for ITV1 that will be based around families in Liverpool," a source said. "They are trying to get towards a 'living' soap. People are starting to understand that the genre is a lot cheaper to produce than traditional soaps."

Radio City DJ Rick Vaughn leaves station after “breaking competition rules”
Jan 27, 2012


Radio City DJ Rick Vaughn

RADIO City DJ Rick Vaughn has left the station after allegedly breaking the rules of a competition run by the station late last year.

The St Johns tower-based station said today that Vaughn had not adhered to parent company Bauer Media’s strict rules over the handling of promotions and competitions.

A Radio City spokesman confirmed the station had taken action as soon as the issue was discovered, and that his replacement will be announced shortly. Vaughn has not been on-air this week with Simon Greening covering his daytime show.

Staff are believed to have been called into a meeting earlier this week to be told Vaughn had left.

The flamboyant presenter, known for his love of shades, Ugg boots and Juicy Couture tracksuits, had returned to Radio City for a second stint in 2008, having started his radio career at the station more than a decade earlier.

In 2010 he won a Merseyside edition of Come Dine With Me, where he entertained his fellow contestants with a celebrity-themed night at his city-centre flat.

A Radio City spokesperson said: “We can confirm that Rick Vaughn has left Radio City, as a direct result of his handling of a competition late last year. Bauer Media has strict codes of conduct in relation to the handling of promotions and competitions and it was subsequently discovered that Rick had not adhered to these codes.

“The integrity of our promotions and competitions is of paramount importance to us, our listeners and our customers, which is why we took action as soon as we discovered there had been an issue.”

Mr Vaughn could not be contacted for comment today.

A spokesman for regulator Ofcom said it was involved in the case.

Local TV in Liverpool

Phil Redmond is bidding for this:

http://www.how-do.co.uk/north-west-m...20330100956935

This guy made a few quid from his TV company.. should know how to make a success out of Liverpool TV.

"My vision for local television will be the same as Mersey TV: to make television that creates a more sympathetic climate for real practitioners and campaigners to be better understood and heard.

"It will be to create a platform and exhibition space for voices and social issues that do not get properly exposed or debated. It will be commercially driven but with a strong public service purpose."

Debate on plans for Liverpool local TV

FOUR of the bidders for a local television licence in Liverpool have debated their visions for the service.

Five companies have bid for the right to broadcast a TV service to Liverpool on Freeview Channel 8.

Liverpool John Moores University’s Liverpool Screen School yesterday hosted an event called “Getting the Liverpool picture”, on how local TV could work for the region. And in the Redmonds Building – named after one of the bidders, Phil Redmond – all four speakers pledged to get local people involved in programme-making.

Chris Kerr, programme director at bidder Bay TV Liverpool, said that old-style TV regions, such as “Granadaland”, were too big to represent all the small communities they covered.

He said: “Local TV gives us not just the chance but the obligation to focus on a particular locality.”

Mr Kerr said Bay TV would hold workshops to encourage local people to make programmes.

Canadian broadcaster Channel Zero, which owns local TV station CHCH in Hamilton, Ontario, is bidding under the name Metro8 Liverpool.

Chris Fuoco, its vice-president for sales and marketing, said CHCH had found a niche by delivering 84 hours of original local programming a week.

“That’s more than any other broadcaster in North America,” he said.

Mr Fuoco said the Liverpool station would import CHCH’s “All News, All Day” format, with up to 79 hours of local programming a week.

In a video, Romen Podzyhun, chairman of Channel Zero, said: “We’re profitable. It’s a very sustainable business now. The model works. We’ve proved everybody wrong.”

Brookside creator Phil Redmond said his bid, Our-TV, had been put together with a “philanthropic” intent to get local people involved in local television.

“We will not be trying to second guess what people think,” he said, “as that seems to imply that it’s a top-down, mediated, gatekeeper TV service.”

And he said he wanted people to get involved, whatever their ability level, as a debate over “quality” could exclude people who want to get involved but as yet have no experience in television.

He said: “That’s just the traditionalists trying to keep the temple doors shut – ‘you don’t know the scrolls, you can’t come in’.

Mr Redmond unveiled a draft schedule for Our-TV. It had three main components: news, “toolkit” programmes to tell people how they can get involved with the service, and “public service and community” slots for public sector bodies to communicate directly with the public.

And he issued a challenge to other bidders – why should they not, he said, come together to agree a unified TV bid before Ofcom’s official announcement?

Lynne Wood, station director at YourTV Liverpool, said the debate over local TV should not be framed by previous experiments, including the Channel One service run by the Post’s parent company in Liverpool from 1996 to 2002.

She said: “This is a different time and different place.

“We have lower costs to our advantage now, particularly equipment levels. Smaller audiences are more sustainable now.

“As Phil has said, this is about social engagement. It’s not top-down TV.”

The final bidder in Liverpool, Made TV, chose not to take part in the debate.

Ofcom will reveal the winner of the Liverpool licence before the end of the year.

Anyone remember One Summer, a story of two scouse kids from broken homes who run away to Wales? It was class and I wish it would get repeated.

Yes, it was excellent from memory though how it'd seem now I don't know. It starred a very young David Morrissey. A couple of years ago on a Northern Line London tube I saw him reading a book sitting next to a woman I assume was his wife. He's about to star in The Walking dead which is one of my favourite TV shows.

I wonder which part of Liverpool the flats were where Billy and Icky lived. I have a feeling, judging by the closeness to the river and a road sign saying Widnes, it was somewhere near Toxteth.

The Skinny Launches in Liverpool and Manchester

The Skinny is Scotland’s largest entertainment and listings magazine, and is about to create a new magazine for Manchester and Liverpool. We are excited. It will print in April 2013 with a target monthly print run of 34,000 copies distributed through a network of 600 cafes, bars, libraries, cinemas, restaurants, and shops for free. It will cover the types of things it already covers, if they are culturally relevant to Manchester and Liverpool. It will feature music, art, theatre, comedy and club listings for the cities, plus unique interviews and reviews of events and artists' work that wouldn't normally get covered in mainstream press.

As the magazine will be free, it survives on advertising revenues. If you are a potential advertiser, we are looking forward to working with you. Currently over 90% of our Scottish advertisers return to advertise in our Scotland edition. When you advertise in The Skinny's pages your business will benefit from a huge circulation, a great brand association, a month-long shelf life, and your advert will be carried in all 600 local venues in which the magazine is distributed. If you are interested, get in touch on sales@theskinny.co.uk.

From the beginning The Skinny set out to prioritise quality content regardless of its local or national profile, and we have always favoured quality over size. We want to find people like us who want to create content that is relevant to Manchester and Liverpool, speaks about their passion for the subject, and understands that their audience is as savvy as they are. We are recruiting for Manchester and Liverpool based sales staff, and we will recruit editorial staff from December. We are also up for investigating collaborations with blogs, websites and other businesses who are already doing this in Manchester and Liverpool.

Bay TV Liverpool - our vision for Local TV

Major changes in broadcasting are on the horizon, with the launch of a chain of local TV stations, of a kind never before seen in the UK.

Twenty-one local channels will be launched by the end of 2014, including one that will serve a potential audience of 2.8 million viewers in the city of Liverpool and surrounding areas.

Bay TV Liverpool Ltd is among five bidders for the Liverpool licence which will be awarded by the regulator Ofcom, for a period of 12 years.

Ofcom had originally hoped to name of the successful bidder in December, but due to the significant number of bids nationally and the complexity of the process has been somewhat delayed.

The Liverpool licence and three others are now expected to be among the last to be awarded, in February 2013.

In this video we proclaim our passion to serve Liverpool with a new completely independent station and proclaim an exciting vision of how local TV can contribute to the life of our great city region.

We spell-out how we plan to serve the needs of our viewers and to broaden the range of programmes available, connecting and interacting with viewers other stakeholders in a way never before achieved on TV in the UK.

The Liverpool local channel will appear at Channel 8 on Freeview while spots on Sky and Virgin are yet to be allocated.

But Bay TV Liverpool is also committed to multi-platform delivery.

We have advanced plans to stream our programmes live to computers, tablets and mobile phones with all this content available to "watch again" on demand over the internet, on tablets and mobile phones.

All this will see an opening-up local TV in a way that has never before been possible.

You can see the video presented by Claire Rourke here http://baytvliverpool.com/vod/index....V50eab7dce7df6

I wish them the best of luck and really hope they're able to find a niche but as it currently stands I don't see how these local services can be a success in any part of the country.

They were always in with a shout as their website did show that they had the capacity to deliver local output, albeit on a smaller scale. In fact the website could have been a great loss-leader for getting the license in the first place.

Some of the output will be great, some rubbish. If they have God on for LFC stuff, that's brilliant. I think they'll be using Claire from LFCTV as well, who has loads of TV experience.

I like the idea of Liam Fogherty doing the politics stuff too. He came across well in the mayoral campaign.

I'm not sure if it will succeed in the long run, but I'll certainly be supporting it.
