Radio News Hub moves to new home in Leeds

UK news provider Radio News Hub is preparing to move to a new home in West Yorkshire.

Until now the company has been operating out of a serviced office block near Leeds.

The move marks the latest milestone in the company’s progression – which began in a small backroom in a shared office space late in 2014.

It has also recently appointed ex-talkRADIO newsreader Carl Hartley as a new senior journalist with plans to introduce a new Content Manager role early in 2021.

The team at Broadcast Radio have worked on creating the two new studios. While the building – exclusively for Radio News Hub – also boasts a presentation suite, meeting room, chill area as well as the newsroom.

Director Jamie Fletcher said: “We’re really excited about moving to our new home. When we first came up with the idea of a bulletin service six years ago, we had a vision of where we wanted to take the company.

“We have had to be sensible financially. There has been no backing from a third party.”

Artwork is displayed within the building giving a nod to locations of some client stations – especially those who have been with the company since the launch.

Director Stephanie Otty added: “We have come a long way since those days! We were in an underground room in our first six months with virtually no natural daylight – and on market day if a van parked in a certain spot outside, we would lose all TV pictures!

“We are really excited about the future. We have a number of exciting plans for 2021 – one of which we think many of our clients will look forward to.”

Radio News Hub provides hourly bulletins to more than 300 radio stations across the world and powers rolling news service
