The Yorkshire Evening Post is to launch its own web-tv series investigating six haunted buildings in Leeds, writes Sinead Scanlon for Journalism.co.uk.
A team from the Post will be joined by television medium Barrie John and ‘paranormal investigator’ Lynne Robinson, a press release from Johnston Press said.
The paper is hoping to appeal to an international online audience with the series, which will also be hosted on a separate website hauntedleeds.co.uk.
“This series represents the opportunities the web has given newspapers like ours. With this series, we’re hopefully going to show what can be achieved by pushing our own relatively modest understanding of video to its limit,” said Geoff Fox, Yorkshire Evening Post’s digital editor and series producer.
“It’s a testament to the willingness of our staff to adapt and embrace modern technology to enable them to successfully explore new mediums outside the realms of print.”
