" "Ultra-local is definitely the way to go. If you promise ultra-local, you’ve got
to be able to deliver it. The number of journalists we have [60] is huge
compared with many other regional papers – but, even with that many, we can’t
deliver ultra-local news all the time. To do it, we’re going to need another 500
reporters – we can’t take them on, they’re going to need to be citizen
journalists. They want to get this information out there; we need to say ‘yes,
we’ll be your electronic parish noticeboard, come give it to us and it will be
in the Express & Star’ – whereas, if you just set it up on your own, you’re
only going to have a limited audience. "  — That’s Keith Harrison, deputy editor of the UK’s second biggest regional
newspaper, the Wolverhampton Express & Star
