As the UK’s new immigration regulations come into force, Angel Media Productions CIC is preparing to launch its latest venture – an online magazine called The Immigrant celebrating the contribution of migrants to Britain’s business, culture and way of life.
Invented by company director and former BBC journalist Urbi Basu – an Indian national living in London – The Immigrant will tackle difficult issues around migration as well as showcasing the best music, food, dance, literature, arts, science and technology from around the world.
Temporary visitors, native Brits and third or fourth generation immigrants – all are welcome in the pages of The Immigrant, whether they are billionaire business leaders, students, cleaners and casual farm labourers. Anyone can air their views, providing they are expressed respectfully. Founder Urbi Basu says:
“We are already getting a good response for the idea of this new e-zine in our surveys. And most people say they would be prepared to pay for this innovative new publication.”
Market research surveys have proved there is strong interest in the new e-zine, which will appear monthly on this website. Subscribers can try one issue for free before signing up to a regular download, and Angel Media Productions CIC is crowd-funding to cover the costs of the launch edition.
Ghanaian broadcaster Sonny Decker, who presents Talking Africa on London’s leading community radio station Resonance 104.4FM, comments:
“It is time that we had a serious debate about immigration issues – the good, the bad and the ugly. Too many mainstream media stories reduce the whole thing to sensationalist headlines. This new venture will open up the debate.”
Advertisers and sponsors can take advantage of discounted prices in the launch edition of The Immigrant to reach a wide range of niche markets across the diaspora that are traditionally hard to reach. For more information contact email@example.com
