ICE releases media report

The work of the ICE received three mentions in national newspapers this summer and 207 regional press clippings, a new report said last week.

These figures are down on the previous quarter, where the ICE received nine mentions in the nationals and 315 mentions in regional newspapers.

The figures for July through to September were published in the ICE’s quarterly media coverage report that was released last week.

Broadcast coverage

Online and broadcast coverage statistics were also covered in the report. The ICE garnered 169 online articles and 31 television and radio mentions.

In the previous quarter it had received 219 online articles and 30 broadcast hits.

Articles in trade magazines such as NCE were up, with 85 articles in July through to September compared with 71 in April through to June.

The ICE’s work with the media is designed “to create a position for the ICE as the ‘voice of infrastructure’” and “communicate with decision-makers, industry, the public and politicians”.

ICE vice president and public voice head Geoff French said that over the past quarter the ICE’s reaction to the High Speed 2 proposals created “a lot of media interest”.

He added that going forwards, the National Infrastructure Plan 2 was also key to giving the ICE a “strong platform to keep reiterating in the media the importance of infrastructure”.
