Everyone that knows me personally knows that my fiancee works in local journalism, but many of you won’t know the details (to be honest, I find it hard to keep up!).
One of his currently projects is a little closer to home than they usually are (and definitely closer than INews was!) in that he’s working with the team that has launched a new website which showcases the best of Newcastle called NewcastleWorld.
Like most people in the North East, we naturally gravitate to Newcastle in our downtime for the amazing nightlife, culture, food and football. Some people go up the road to Sun’lun, but I was one of the ones in the Gallowgate End with my Grandad at St James’, sorry! I also saw Tino score a hattrick against Barca!
NewcastleWorld is a source for a wealth of information ahead of visiting as well as for those who live and work in the City.
Edited by the brilliant Laura, who Mark has worked with for many years in Leeds and Sunderland – I know that NewcastleWorld is going to be a valuable resource for people like me! I’ve already found out so much about bottomless brunches that I did not know about – now just to find a babysitter!
There is a daily newsletter that shares the top stories and happenings, as well as a curated selection of news stories on business and politics on how it affects the people of Newcastle.
I’ve already switched my football-mad family onto the insights on Newcastle United, with Liam Kennedy bringing exclusives, which have already got many fans talking and complementing the refreshing approach.
