Regional TV knows more than the advertising industry?

I find this a little hard to believe – that the reason why Stratos went under was because the advertising industry “had never got its head around cumulative figures“.

It may well be that Stratos TV never got their head around the fact that their shows weren’t generating enough advertising support because they simply didn’t have enough viewers.

Perhaps if their political content wasn’t moderated by people as unappealing as Martyn Bradbury, they might have a better chance of generating support from people with discretionary spending – i.e. centre-right viewers. But why would anyone centre-right want to watch a TV show with the main host so offensively negative about people who believe in conservatism or centre-right politics?

There might be a lesson in there somewhere.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
