Urbs Media, which specialises in data journalism, has announced the new tie-up with DMA Media, allowing it to grow its customer base and develop plans for targeted news stories and content marketing.
Latterly, Alan ran Local World’s Bristol operation while Gary was editor of Channel 5 News.
Alan, pictured above left, said: “We’re delighted to have brought a world class news business on board, not just as a financial investor but with the deep expertise and network they will bring.
“DMA’s involvement will allow us to scale up both our news production resource, and our customer base.”
The new investment will help Urbs, founded just over a year ago, to establish an expanded Bristol data centre as well as a newsroom based in London.
