Inclusive is taking part in local TV events around the UK from September to December 2011 – to promote Local Digital News (LDN).
LDN has been set up by Inclusive to offer digital, editorial and management services to organisations planning to apply for local TV channels.
This is in response to the unveiling of Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt’s strategy for local TV – which aims to see 50 local TV services on air in the next two years.
LDN is being led by two broadcasting and digital executives: Nigel Dacre, CEO of Inclusive Digital and former Editor of ITV News; and Steve Perkins, former Head of Content Policy at Ofcom.
So far, they have given presentations or held meetings in London, Nottingham, Birmingham, Norwich, Leeds and Newcastle.
