We Make a difference

We are passionate about having an impact. We aspire to improve the lives of our audiences and communities. That's our business.

We Are Principled

We understand the importance of integrity and trust. We question and debate honestly and so what is right in every situation

We Push the boundaries

We are curious and we excel on creativity and imagination. We look for opportunities to challenge and change the way things are done.

We Get it done

We are purposeful. We do what we say and we always deliver results. We have real pride in our work and take it, rather than ourselves, seriously.

We Work as a team

We each play different roles, but our success is all about connection and collaboration: with our audience, our customers, our employees and our unique story.

We Are news
