ANTIGUA CHRONICLE seeks to make news and newsworthy information available for individuals at home, abroad and on the go through technologically influenced mediums like the Internet, radio and mobile telephone.
The main focus of this publication is to not only make news available, but rather to do so in an almost instantaneous and seamless manner through easily accessible mediums like our website and social networking sites like facebook and twitter. We also endeavor to produce news through collaborative arrangements with local mobile service providers with text message and Blackberry Messenger updates.
Although this news medium (online) is already being utilized in Antigua & Barbuda, we believe the market is not being utilized to its fullest potential and are therefore intent on maximizing the benefits of technology for the education and information of the people of this country.
We offer more than six years of professional media experience and Degree levels of education in English, Communications, International Relations and Gender Development Studies. Our team comes armed with professionals who understand the industry and have skilled themselves in all areas of societal interests.
Coupled with our combined expertise, we also bring with us the knowhow from similar ventures in the British Virgin Islands, St. Maarten, Dominica, Guyana and the United Kingdom.
News is gathered live on the ground from our contributors and channeled directly to the editor in charge where it is then updated seamlessly to www.antiguachronicle.net. This will be done ideally within a ten to 20-minute timespan with live periodical updates as the story develops and information confirmed.
The market in which we operate is still relatively small in Antigua and Barbuda with two recognized bodies providing online news but none of which operates in the manner that Antigua Chronicle proposes to.
We are confident that our approach will not only set a new trend in newsgathering in the country but also build on the thirst of the public for information and accountability and excite the interests of the younger more technologically inclined generations.
