There was a bit of confusion on social media a few days ago about when Made in Leeds TV would finally start its broadcasts, but chief exec of parent company Made Television Jamie Conway said on Twitter this afternoon that …
The station was advertising for staff last month, including a news editor, video journalists, camera operators, production assistants, craft editors and producers.
Broadcasting on Freeview and Sky, the station’s schedule includes an evening magazine show, two half-hour live news bulletins every night, “core in-house programmes” on cookery, sports, property etc, plus new programmes made by local production companies.
There’ll be news and info updates and local “shorts” on the hour throughout the daytime schedule of repeat broadcasts and “acquired content”.
To help them do it all they’ve got a fair few “partners”, including Leeds Met University, Leeds United fanzine The Square Ball, discussion group The Leeds Salon, the Leeds Civic Trust and the Trinity Leeds shopping mall.
