In this week’s closer look, we see how local government can get its story straight through better media management. We speak with Robin Latchem and Sophie Willett about the decline in local coverage, what the BBC is trying to do turn that around and how we can get important messages out to our local communities. Plus highlights from the LGiU Daily News service and more great content for LGiU Members and Followers.
Hosted by Jen Glover and Andrew Walker. Featuring an interview with Sophie Willett and Robin Latchem by Ingrid Koehler.
