Chesil Radio & Pulman's Weekly News Pull Together To Bring More Great Local News

You may have noticed that we are producing more in-house news stories, this has been made possible by myself completing my freelance journalism course with distinction.

Within hours of this news, Pulman's Weekly News approached us about helping raise awareness of our news formats, with ourselves being initially audio-based coverage and now moving into publishing online, both on our website and social media sites. Pulman's Weekly News, with its roots in the print format since Victorian times, winning awards still in the 21st century, standing side by side, doing what we both do best and being there for our local communities.

Pulman's Weekly News' Duncan Williams said: "I first discovered Chesil Radio whilst living and working in Dorset for The Bournemouth Echo over five years ago and have been a regular listener ever since. Nikki Latham has a passion for broadcasting that immediately engages with her audience. I have been inspired, not only by the excellent daily playlists she selects but also by what can be achieved with a labour of love for local community media."
Duncan added: "Grassroots community news has never been in greater demand. We are living through an era where trusted news brands, whether they be newspaper, radio or television networks, are all valuable source of local information which is too often ignored by national news corporations. People access their news through a variety of mediums and it is a health thing that historic regional newspaper titles such as Pulman's Weekly News, seek to develop health collaborations between innovative digital publishers and community broadcasters such as Chesil Radio."
We have been over the past few weeks, sharing the stories written by myself on the social media of Pulman's Weekly News and associated media pages, which we will continue to do with their support. We always welcome more press releases, which can be sent direct at: nikki@chesilradio.com for our team here and direct to Pulman's Weekly News on social media: www.facebook.com/PulmansWeekly
Chesil Radio's station owner, John Latham says: "Chesil Radio is delighted to be working with Pulman's Weekly News, a media organisation founded in 1857. Giving us the opportunity to enhance the level of news and services, we can bring to our listeners within the South and South West of England."
John added: "I would also like to congratulate our Voluntary Station Controller, Nikki Latham, who during lockdown, managed to achieve her Freelance Journalism Diploma at Distinction level. Nikki is one of the founding members of Chesil Radio and her work enthusiasm and commitment to the station has been incredible."
