Closing keynote address

Launching London Live

Local TV has been a long-time coming; London Live will discuss the challenges they have faced in creating a TV station for the capital. The licences granted to local TV stations allow them much greater flexibility in terms of advertising, but is this enough to allow them to be financially viable? London Live is part of the Evening Standard group and consequently there will be convergence between print and video media. Andrew Mullins will discuss how viewers will experience this convergence.
