Martin Leeburn has been presenting the Sunday morning newspaper show on Rocket FM for more years than he can remember, latterly with the musically encyclopaedic Paul Shine.
Martin was a journalist and worked in PR.
Even over the relatively short life of Rocket FM the world of newspapers has changed beyond recognition. Fewer people buy them, newspapers employ fewer journalists and many of their stories are derived from social media. The only thing that’s gone up is the price!
That said, once a week is probably often enough to look at what papers are offering us, and why. Plus some great music chosen by Paul and Martin.
