We are pleased to bring our readers and viewers fresh content - in written and video format and pictures on a daily basis - with our commitment to champion Birmingham and its people. There have been so many important stories and events that we have covered since September 2021, but here are just a few of the major issues we have raised and achievements we have celebrated:

Asmita almost got knocked over as she reported on the dangers of Birmingham’s most dangerous road. Joe has shone a light on the achievements of Birmingham schools which have ranked top in national surveys and Ofsted inspections. He also reports from the heart of communities across Birmingham, recently visiting business and community leaders in Dale End in Birmingham city centre and Moseley.

And we all bring you the latest news on the openings and closings and the huge array of awards that Birmingham’s thriving food and drink scene brings.
