Who We Are

Quays News is an online news platform run by a dedicated team of students at the University of Salford. We report on stories predominantly in and around Salford and Manchester, producing web content and broadcasting our weekly Quays News television and radio programmes from our state-of-the-art studios at MediaCityUK.

First launched in 2012, Quays News has been providing students with a live platform to develop and hone their reporting and content production skills. Embedded into curriculum for assessment purposes, it is also run as an extra-curricular site by a team of dedicated volunteers.

The team represents all levels of journalism at the university, from first year undergraduates through to postgraduates. As an open collaborative project, Quays News also regularly welcomes students from a range of other programmes across the university including BA TV & Radio and BSc Professional Sound and Video Technology.
