Guest Speaker: Michael Scott, Head of Digital Content, Alpha Media Group

Michael Scott is the Alpha Media Group’s Head of Digital Content. He is responsible for improving the offering on the websites which accompany the businesses 12 newspapers, as well as developing new content, such as Your Lurgan, which the company launched in April 2021.

Previously he was the editor of the Ulster Gazette in Armagh and the Newry Democrat, and has worked at the Tyrone Courier in Dungannon and the Banbridge and Dromore Leader.

Newspapers have been part of the community in the ABC borough for over 175 years. But with print audiences falling, how do these long-standing institutions appeal to new and ever-changing audiences? How hard is it to get a new idea, like Your Lurgan, off the ground against long-established competitors? And how can what we offer online assist businesses in the ABC area?
