Stoke-on-Trent makes Channel 4 shortlist!
Today's news that Stoke-on-Trent has made the shortlist to be one of the home of Channel 4's new creative hubs is brilliant news for our city, our region and the talented and innovative people who live here.
Since my first meetings with Channel 4 last year with my colleague Ruth Smeeth MP and the subsequent meetings, it's clear we have what Channel 4 are looking for and I'm eager to get started on bringing the investment and jobs our local residents deserve.
Clearly Channel 4 has recognised the incredible opportunity that Stoke-on-Trent offers to them as a base for one of their new media hubs. To be shortlisted is fantastic, but now all our fingers are crossed that we can go all the way!
