The Group’s current news service is geared to organisations working in rural areas. We want to reach individual residents too possibly by using of parish and community networks.
There is no rural daily national news service. Clearly if one is to be established it would be best to do it via a web site. One option that might be envisaged is through negotiations with the BBC, ITV, Sky or B.T with a link through to the RSN web site. An estimate for a journalist at an hour a day approximate to a sum of say £8,000 p.a.
