Hyperlocal – Like a Fox

Here’s me being interviewed by Paul Bradshaw of the UK’s Online Journalism blog as part of their Hyperlocal Voices series. May also interest those who want the history of TWOP.

    I know you hope to have moved on from bagging The West, but have you seen that TV ad for ‘The New West Weekend.’? it’s ghastly.

    I am not sure what is new about the weekend paper, since it seems to be the same people doing the same things. Maybe they are arranged in a different order, or have a thrilling new masthead.

    The ad shows West journos wearing too much make-up, sitting on a series of big cut-out letters that spell out the newspaper, and pretending that we are all going to hang out together at the weekend like the cast of ‘Friends’. Thankfully Nurry and Castlearse are not there: they have concentrated on the young, good-looking staff, and Rob Broadfield.

    it’s bad enough that they make me yell expletives at the newspaper, now they have me shouting at the telly.

    since when do newspapers need to advertise on the TV? A television advert begging you to buy two hundred pages of print ads

    Mr Denmore has other ideas on Crabby Annabel – whose unhealthy obsession with one A Abbott should set Alarm Bells ringing !!!
