New news and features websites serving Edinburgh and Glasgow have been launched by broadcasters, STV.
Says STV, in a statement: “STV is committed to delivering accessible services via multi-platforms across Scotland and the decision to create city sites for Glasgow and Edinburgh further reinforces this commitment. As part of the STV Local platform, these sites will offer the opportunity to engage with content on a city-wide level but also for communities within the cities to connect on a more local level.
“With a team of dedicated journalists behind each site, visitors can be promised immediate access to all of the essential info needed to experience the cities to the full and everything they have to offer.”
The launches are being supported by TV adverts, based on the concept, 'Everything around you'.
The statement quotes, David Milne, editor of STV Local, as saying: “The evolution of STV Local has led us to the creation of two city sites for Edinburgh and Glasgow, each aspiring to be ‘the voice of the city’. The sites are a natural extension of the Local network and are built around core values, including our passionate belief in community. Our hope is that our Edinburgh and Glasgow sites, with their compelling editorial and video content, will prove essential to those who live and work in these great cities.”
