RIU launches a monthly TV news bulletin
24 August 2010
The RIU portfolio consists of over 40 different initiatives spread across nine sub-Saharan African countries
with other work on-going in Asia
. To share the emerging lessons and report impact RIU has launched a monthly web-based television news bulletin.
, head of communications at RIU, said:
'We have a very content-rich website with a great deal of new material being posted regularly, but some people reported that they found this a bit overwhelming. Clearly we needed to find a way to bring attention to what is new and exciting and we have done this in two ways. Firstly we have introduced a new monthly TV news bulletin which is presented by ex-BBC anchor Nik Woods who is the RIUtv correspondent. Secondly, we have introduced RIU Highlights. The contents of the Highlights and the news bulletin are the same; this means that if you want to find more information about a featured story you can quickly find further information by following the links to the website.'
The first RIUtv News bulletin and Highlights covers activities in July and August 2010.
