VIEW FROM THE NINIAN
As a lifelong fan of Cardiff City football, I have craved a medium for fans, by fans – with engaging content that represents what the local fan is truly thinking. Sadly, the local media coverage of the club does not meet those needs.
In June 2018, a group of likeminded Cardiff City fans came together to create View From The Ninian – a website and podcast befitting of the club’s standing as a Premier League outfit. We provide news, analysis, features and interviews, as well as our bi-weekly podcast.
The reaction so far (as of writing on January 2019) has been superb. We have reached almost 2,000 followers on Twitter and the site has amassed 40,000 sessions and 18,000 unique users in the past two months. We have interviewed former players (Danny Gabbidon, Graham Kavanagh, Gavin Gordon, Jordan Mutch and Joe Mason) as well as current player Lee Peltier. We have also a fortnightly column from former fan favourite Kevin McNaughton.
I also host and produce the weekly VFTN Podcast, which is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and more.
