Inclusive’s CEO, Nigel Dacre, has addressed the Edinburgh Television Festival, saying that there “is a real and palpable momentum” behind local television.
In the next year and a half, 19 local television channels are due to launch, and in the next six months, Ofcom are holding tenders for a further 28 licenses.
Nigel is the Director of Notts TV, which is part-owned by Local Digital News (LDN) – a subsidiary of Inclusive. Notts TV is due to launch in April 2014.
