Liverpool Reporter
Liverpool Reporter is our audio news archive and also our local music online radio station. We set this site up as Merseyside has produced and continues to produce some of the best musical talents in the world. It has an extremely diverse population and this has led the Citie's amazing culture developing. This culture has lead to many amazing acts becoming international names, forming some of the world's best selling songs and bands. Liverpool alone has found worldwide acclaim through bands like The Beatles and Space, not forgetting Atomic Kitten and even the Spice Girls. At Liverpool Reporter we aim to bring you that music from this vibrant area, and to support talented artists of Merseyside. Liverpool Reporter provides a free online web radio service, that requires no registration for its listeners to tune in.  It is also free for bands to submit work to, and we hope that by giving us the rights to freely play the music they produce, we can get them the followings they deserve.

Southport TV is our online video archive.  It is where you can find archived video news footage taken by us and also other video footage we have done over the years, that we feel you might like to watch.   Please note that some features might not ve working at times, as this website is also undergoing major changes as we are developing the site to work with our YouTube Channel as well as delivering our video archive via our own website.
