Vital Pompey members and Meridian TV have been working together on a feature, which will be screened on Meridian Tonight at 6pm.
Researchers from Meridian picked up stories and threads that were posted on the site and got in touch with Rug about cooperating on a story around Cup Final tickets. Rug unfortunately is located out of the area and had to nominate eastneydave to be the face of VP. Filming took place last week and the story has now been edited to run tonight. Through Rug other VP members were contacted and their stories will also be told in this piece, anonymously where requested.
The Meridian reporter involved in the story is Elisa Mitchell who was awarded Regional Consumer Journalist of the Year in 2007. Elisa and her team have put in a great deal of effort on this subject and admit they have enough material for a half hour special. Elisa also carries her Pompey shirt with her everywhere as a prop.
There is no doubt that the slot will put the site in a very good light for the way we have tried to protect and advise fans on the subject of buying tickets. Some Pompey fans have often been critical and at times even cynical of the local television coverage of all things Pompey; I hope and believe this particular article may change that attitude.
Watch tonight at 6pm or if you do not receive the local Hampshire Meridian News for whatever reason it will be available on the itvlocal.com/meridian site soon after the programme is complete. We will have the link on the front page as soon as we can.
