GRV Media’s The Focus website hits 2m page views in November, just 7 months after launch.
Established in April 2020, The Focus offering includes running paid Football Writers Academy and Writers Associate Programmes for those hoping to make journalism a career.
The Focus Managing Editor Paul Watson said: ‘I am very proud to have been involved in this initiative from the start. The website has grown every month, as we work hard to produce added-value creative content. We expect to see strong growth in 2021 and beyond, as we hire more talent and expand into other areas’.
Martin Cooper, who runs both programmes, points to the fact that The Focus has been a vehicle for participants to obtain full time positions.
Cooper said: ‘It is very gratifying that a number of those who have worked with us in recent months have gone on to achieve full-time journalist positions, either with GRV Media or elsewhere. The growth and impact of The Focus has been phenomenal’
