National Business News and Journalist Job Changes

We never like to miss out on a great media opportunity here at Nellie PR.   That’s why keeping up to date with the media movers and shakers is so important, helping us to maintain and build great relationships with journalists, producers and many more.

Keeping track of these changes can be time consuming, so to help, we’ve launched a new blog series with a round up of some of the changes that have caught our eye recently.

This week we bring you the latest from the national and business media.

The Times

The Times has recently launched a daily politics focused email newsletter called Red Box.  Set up in partnership with YouGov, Red Box is a free daily political briefing written by Philip Webster of The Times and Tim Shipman of The Sunday Times.  The newsletter will also feature YouGov poll results.
