A hyperlocal publisher is covering the G7 Summit in Cornwall this week after gaining accreditation for the global event.
Cornwall is hosting world leaders at Carbis Bay near Falmouth from today until Sunday with international delegates and media based at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth.
Among the hundreds of organisations reporting on the gathering is hyperlocal site Nub News Falmouth, which succeeded in gaining media accreditation for the event.
In a piece published yesterday, regional editor Joseph Macey said the site’s coverage would focus on what the G7 will mean for Falmouth and the local community.
Said Joseph, pictured: “Nub News will be right in the heart of the action reporting on local issues that matter to you, looking at the legacy the G7 will leave on Falmouth, what the residents of Falmouth make of the summit, and the impact this has all had on local businesses.
“This is an opportunity for our town to gain investment and exposure, a chance to show off its huge potential.
Nub News founder and chief executive Karl Hancock told HTFP he was “pretty proud that Nub News is covering such a massive event from the local angle.”
He said: “I think Nub News could be the only dedicated hyper-local news site in the world to be covering this hugely important summit of democratic nations. We feel privileged to do so.
“I hope the leaders gathered in Cornwall during the coming days will recognise the importance of seeing the world from the viewpoint of local communities and the millions who feel increasingly disconnected from public life.”
“Our fast growing band of Nub readers will look forward to hearing from the Leaders of the Free World on how they propose to revitalise the triumph of democracy and champion the rights of ordinary people to hold power to account.”
