Multimedia Hub Opens In Midlands

Editors and journalists with Trinity Mirror’s Birmingham titles have taken their places in a new multimedia newsroom.

The Birmingham Post, Birmingham Mail and Sunday Mercury are now produced by staffers working alongside each other in the new offices in a former tyre factory.

According to HoldTheFrontPage.co.uk, the new-look newsroom includes a central hub reflecting the diminishment of the divisions between the newspapers and their affiliated websites.

Post editor Mar Reeves said of the relocation: “It’s a fantastic, fresh environment – windows all round, an open-plan, no-secrets environment with a central hub making all editorial decisions in the open.

“Even the editors sit out on the floor along with all the desk heads to ensure that content goes to the correct website or print edition at the right time.”
