The AudioBoom digital news team is facing its first big challenge: covering the upcoming General Election.
The team was created at the beginning of the year, specialising in covering international news, as it aimed to be not only a platform where others share audio, but also a publisher in its own right.
Team leader David Marsland has joined this group, which is now focused on engaging people in politics in the run up to the general election. He says:
“People don’t get involved with politics that much outside of the election’s time. But with the elections approaching, we are getting a lot of listeners for all of our political staff.”
