NewsWire scores its first front page splash

Jul 2nd, 2008 | By | Category: Newsroom Blog

NewsWire.co.nz has produced its first front page story in a community newspaper, even before the website is officially launched.

On July 1, the Hutt News featured an article highlighting dangers for cyclists in the Hutt Valley, written by Whitireia journalism student Sandra Dickson.

Two deaths drive home vulnerability of cyclists focused on cycle repair shops, who fix up to eight bikes per week damaged in accidents with motorists.

NewsWire contributors expect this will be the first of many front page scoops by Whitireira journalism students.
