Channel 4, Breaking News, and Congestion Zones

This week's episode of the Bristol Live podcast focuses on how our reporters work when big news breaks. Breaking news is always a huge part of the newsroom environment, so reporter Krishan Davis joins us in the studio to explore how we cover major incidents. From road traffic collisions to serious crime or major fires, there is always something happening in Bristol and our reporters always have their ear to the ground.  Also on this week's episode of Inside Bristol Live, reporter Alex Wood returns to discuss the fate of the Channel 4 HQ.Bristol was in the running to become the new home of the broadcaster, bringing all the perks along with it. Sadly, the city missed out on its chance of a new Channel 4 headquarters - but all is not lost. Alex talks about what the decision means for Bristol, but also how important campaigning journalism is in local news. And finally on this week's show, political editor Esme Ashcroft talks us through some of the controversial plans to cut down in Bristol's traffic congestion nightmare. Anyone travelling by car in Bristol will know that reducing the traffic on our roads is essential, but Bristol City Council's proposals are likely to run up against some stiff opposition.  Links to this episode's stories:Bristol shortlisted for Channel 4 creative hub after losing out on HQ decisionYou might soon be charged to park at work in BristolEverything we know after dramatic police chase ends in crash at St GeorgeIf you'd like to follow us or any of the reporters featured in today's episode, here are the links:Inside Bristol Live: @IBLpodcastHost Alex Ballinger: @ambhackEsme Ashcroft: @EsmeAshcroftAlex Wood: @MrAlexWoodKrishan Davis: @Krishan_Davis For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
