Video news bulletins will now be uploaded to the website weekly, bringing you the top stories of the past seven days, as well as special broadcasts for ‘breaking news’ events.
They will be presented by LymeOnline editor Francesca Evans, with some contributions from managing director Philip Evans MBE.
The initiative comes as part of LymeOnline’s recently-launched Sights & Sounds channel, a multi-media platform bringing your local news to life.
As well as the regular news bulletins, the new channel includes video coverage of events and podcasts with local residents.
Miss Evans said the channel was a step forward for LymeOnline, which celebrates its second anniversary next week.
She commented: “At LymeOnline we recognise the community’s desire for their local news to be presented in both the traditional printed format, as well as online embracing more modern technologies.
“We are committed to the continued publication of our popular, fortnightly printed newspaper as well as uploading the latest news articles to read on our website and developing our social media channels.
“But as we celebrate our second anniversary, this new multi-media channel is another step forward, bringing original video and audio content to an even wider audience.
“We’ve been delighted with the reception that both the LymeOnline website and newspaper has received from the local community over the past two years, and with the success of its growing readership.
“Thank you to all our sponsors, advertisers, readers – and now our viewers – for your continued support, and we look forward to more exciting developments in the future.”
