Trinity Mirror regionals join forces for market crash liveblog

By Patrick

It affects all of their readers, so why not work together? Today Trinity Mirror titles The Journal, Newcastle, the Birmingham Post and the Liverpool Daily Post joined forces to write a liveblog covering the drastic falls in the FTSE 100 share index.

Readers of all three papers were told the project was an attempt to provide “breaking news surrounding the banking crisis, as well informed opinion” from the papers’ experts around the country.

The journalists are using coveritlive, which the LDP and Liverpool Echo have used extensively to cover big events in the city and the Birmingham Post used to cover the recent Conservative Party conference.

One of the benefits of using liveblogs is the ability to post different thing such as pictures, audio or link to things like this handy timeline of the crisis, made using Dipity.

The project has echos of FT.com’s Markets Live, part of the Alphaville bog, which is quietly building a cult following among business-minded folk.
