19 April 2012 | Journalism.co.ukOne&Other announced its expansion this week with the addition of a free monthly magazine and online TV channel. Shortlisted for the 2012 Newspaper Awards for digital innovation, One&Other – which was set up in September 2011 – is working in partnership on the online local TV channel with Parashoots, a film company established by director and screenwriter Mark Herman which aims to help media and film graduates break into the industry. According to a press release the One&OtherTV will offer "a mix of local news, culture, causes and interviews". Paul Richardson, creative director of Parashoots, said the vision for the One&Other expansion is to "reflect a general resurgence in localism." The new magazine, focusing on news and culture, has an initial print run of 15,000 copies per month and launches on 1 May. The magazine is an open collaboration between One&Other's 75-strong network of contributors. "First online, and now in print and TV, piece-by-piece we are conceiving a local media brand and model fit for the 21st century – one that views the industry challenges as possibilities and simultaneously entertains, inspires, and empowers the communities for good", Goulden stated in a press release.
