People’s consumer behaviour has changed a lot during the last few years. There are more viewers turning to social media for the latest news and updates on a variety of national and international topics.
In fact, ITV recently launched a news bulletin targeted for online users.
The broadcaster airs a daily series called The Rundown on Instagram and other social media apps, aiming to provide useful news to 14-17-year-old viewers.
The daily bulletin is presented by Amani Ibrahimi. So, let’s meet the ITV host and get to know her more, including age and social media accounts!
What is The Rundown?
The Rundown was launched by ITV in response to a recent survey aimed at people aged between 14 and 17 years old.
Following the survey, the broadcaster created the service to provide news specifically tailored for the targeted group.
ITV’s daily series coincides with the current social distancing rules and the closure of schools across the UK, meaning there will be more young people tuning in to watch the news.
