This November Made in Leeds TV will be celebrating its first anniversary. The station is one of more than thirty in the UK to have been awarded licences by OFCOM; but what impact are they making on the media landscape and within communities? And are they a new voice or an outdated concept?

This November Made in Leeds TV will be celebrating its first anniversary. The station is one of more than thirty in the UK to have been awarded licences by OFCOM, but what impact are they making on the media landscape and within communities… and are they a new voice or an outdated concept?

As part of Leeds Trinity University’s annual Journalism Week, the Royal Television Society and the Radio Academy will be holding a special debate to try and find some answers.

Taking part will be:-

Dave McCormack,  Chief Operating Officer for the Made Television group

Chris Johnson, CEO of Bay TV in Liverpool and Chair of the Local TV Network

Martin Corrigan from the global media agency Mediacom 

And a representative of Hello York who are currently preparing for their launch of Local TV in York later this year.

Everyone is welcome to attend this free event and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

Drinks will be served at 6.30pm before the debate which starts at 7pm.
