Apologies if anyone has been noticing the strange messages about theMediaNet and Andrew Graystone on Twitter from Duncan Williams and his various publications. If you can, please just ignore them but if you’d like to speak to Andrew, you can connect with him here
Interviews? Articles? Ideas?
Would you be up for being interviewed for the MediaNet website? What about writing a piece about how to do what you do – how to do effective TV research, how to create a great website, how to use PR effectively etc etc? Or could you write an inspiring piece/ share some content which might encourage other Christians working in the media? Do you have any ideas about what you’d like to see on our site?
If you have a job opportunity you want us to advertise, a prayer request or answer to prayer you’d like to share or an exciting project you’re working on please let us know and remember if you want a retweet, just mention @themedianet and if you’d like to post something on our Facebook page please feel free
