Business Live expands reach to Northern Ireland

Business Comms

Business Live is Reach’s UK-wide business news website that hosts stories written by business writers from across our national and regional titles and it now includes Northern Ireland as a region where readers can get all the latest business news locally and nationally in one place.

And we've brought in the best in the business to curate the Northern Ireland content!

The host of Belfast Live's 'How I Got Here' podcast and ex-Belfast Telegraph and Ulster Business editor David Elliott has partnered with us to cover all the Northern Ireland news on the site which will also be available in a weekly newsletter that will be sent straight to subscribers’ inboxes every Monday morning.

David will continue in his role as Senior Client Director at Lanyon Group, alongside Business Live.

"Business Live has already established itself as a leading source of business news across the rest of the UK and I am looking forward to expanding that reach in Northern Ireland. 

"Companies here have shown huge resilience and innovation over the past few months and we want to bring their stories to life through the Business Live network as the economy picks up pace."

As well as being a new destination for business news in NI, Business Live NI will enhance our overall offering commercially, providing greater scope for brand partnerships.

“We are delighted to launch Business Live in Northern Ireland. We felt there was space in the market for a digital-only business platform with agility and relevance which can deliver the news the business community needs", said our Commercial Director Jonathan Eakin.

He added: “By partnering with David Elliott, with the experience and credibility he brings, we believe we have the right content and tone to make this a success in the market.”
