Media network launches on cultural Merseyside

The Merseyside Media Network, the new organisation for journalists on Merseyside, held its official launch in the week Liverpool won its Capital of Culture bid.

In a keynote speech, Ken Bennett, secretary to The Forum, the network’s governing body, said: “We can take real pride in the knowledge that all the media played a vital part in ensuring the bid came to Liverpool.”

The network is an independent, non-profit making organisation and unlike traditional press clubs does not maintain premises or staff. The idea is to build up a network of journalists and hold different events across Merseyside. It already claims a membership of 170. For an application form, e-mail kd_bennett@yahoo.co.uk.
