The Bristol Cable is a pioneering media co-operative – we produce public interest local journalism, owned and led by the over 1800 members in Bristol.
We want local news to be investigative, inclusive and relevant; holding our representatives to account is important. Our approach is democratic: we invite people to get involved, ensure they have the skills they need, and work together to investigate, report and publish accurate stories with an impact.
We produce a free quarterly magazine, regularly publishing website, and run media training and local events which are free or cheap for members. Our aim is to redefine media ownership, bringing it back from corporate control into the hands of ordinary people.
