He has now launched Kevin Ward Media Ltd, offering public relations, communications and media services to the private, public and third sectors.
Based in Newport, Kevin, pictured above left, will be primarily working with organisations in South Wales and has already agreed a number of contracts.
He said: “The aim of the business is simple – to work with organisations that share my passion and enthusiasm for this area and to help them build strong reputations.
“We are all about helping people tell their good news stories in the right way to the right audience at the right time. We are experienced and trusted with a huge array of contacts across South Wales.
“We know what to say, and when and how to say it. And we know precisely the type of content required by today’s multi-platform media.”
Kevin won several awards during a 32-year journalism career including Midlands Newspaper of the Year and Newsquest Editor of the Year.
