GB News: Wales Reporter Lily Hewitson on Giving Wales a National Voice
The newest news outlet in the UK, GB news, which launched earlier this month is seen as the first channel set up with an explicit political orientation in the country. One of their journalists is Cardiff born and bred Lily Hewitson. Lily joined the channel after working with BBC wales, The Sun and Cardiff TV.
As well as discussing the overall ambition of GB News, Lily shed some light on how she thinks the channel can provide a National platform for Wales, where stories which would usually be restricted to a local audience, can be shared across the entirety of the UK. The channel is also experimenting with the way in which broadcasting is conducted politically too, with emphasis on free speech and open discussion.
