We have a unique association with the UK’s third largest radio operator Nation Broadcasting to launch a new radio in Salisbury which will complement our current local service, 95.9FM Andover Radio.
Job positions are up to £25,000 a year.
We already have an agreement with the Observer Media Group which publishes the Love Andover Observer every fortnight and as we further explore opportunities into virtual TV and we create much deeper and evolved social media outlets, we are seeking up to three journalists to work with us.
If you can write for online, have an understanding of the world around you and are passionate about ensuring local people get access to accurate and timely local news, we want to hear from you.
The group working with Love Andover have THREE positions available, but each require people who either already understand or are willing to learn about a multimedia news environment. Jobs are across two geographical locations and across several media platforms.
“As an NUJ member, I have painfully learned recently about the sheer lack of ability to report on local matters”, says Love Andover founder David Harber. “I am astounded by the absence of reporters at local council meetings, or are willing to provide concise information to local people”.
“People need to have access to decisions that are made on their behalf. If it’s not publicly available, we will all walk blindly into decisions that we may otherwise have had a chance to challenge.”
Andover Radio is part of a consortium that is committed to ensuring access to local information through local press, radio and online content. This includes at least two local radio stations for Salisbury that will be launched in the summer and the growth of the Observer newspaper which now covers Andover and Basingstoke.
Applicants with an understanding of TV, Instagram and visual digital solutions will be at an advantage.
