Leading sports agency Sportsbeat joins forces with Storybeat to form Beat Media
Sportsbeat is now part of Beat Media Group, which draws together the editorial contacts and syndication power of two leading content agencies.
Sportsbeat is the UK’s leading sports content service, with landmark clients including the British Olympic Association, Football Association, Premiership Rugby, The Open Golf, PRO 14 Rugby and the Six Nations.
It will join forces with Storybeat to create Beat Media and together the two agencies, and partner Kennedy News, will reach an audience of 750 million with an output of 60,000 stories, videos and infographics a year.
“We are bringing together all our creative firepower in one place to better serve our clients across all our vertical markets,” said Beat Media’s managing director James Parsons.
“Sportsbeat has been the UK’s leading sports content service for over a decade and Storybeat will bring the same values to serving clients and media in news and entertainment, under the umbrella of Beat Media Group.”
From summer 2018, the agency will move to a purpose built 6,000 square foot newsroom in Twickenham, which will be home to all our London based content specialists.
This office will run alongside our base on Albert Square, right in the heart of Manchester.
The office will also be home to News Associates, the UK’s top-ranked NCTJ journalism school.
