Russell Scanlan broadcasts its services to Notts TV

New organistion Notts TV has appointed local insurance broking and risk managing firm Russell Scanlan to develop a comprehensive portfolio of insurance cover for the business. This news comes hot off the heels of the TV station’s recent launch to in excess of 1.5 million people.

Located at Antenna, the Creative Quarter’s business hub for the creative industries, Notts TV delivers a range of news and featured programmes that provide something for everyone.

But as a start-up consortium involving the Nottingham Post, Nottingham Trent University, Confetti Media Group and Inclusive Digital, the recently-formed organisation has had to put in place all the necessary measures to operate effectively.

Russell Scanlan - based on Wellington Circus in the City - was approached to help on the insurance side because of the firm’s strong reputation within the local business community.

Richard Hamblin, Finance Director at Confetti Media Group, explained: “The very nature of our work at Notts TV means staff will be using high tech equipment as they go out and about to push the boundaries and source that all important story. We needed a specialist insurance package to protect our assets as well as any potential issues that may arise as a result of our coverage.    

“The team at Russell Scanlan provided us with an excellent service, testing the market on our behalf, to find the right cover at the right price. It’s reassuring to know that they are just around the corner in the event that we need further support.”

Mike Dickinson, Development Director at Russell Scanlan, added: “Notts TV is an exciting venture and one which is changing the media landscape across the City. We’re delighted to have been appointed by the organisation, and look forward to working with the team as it goes from strength to strength.”
