Now Mark's offering video news
A NEW online TV-style news channel has gone live this week.
TV Exe serves Exeter, East and Mid Devon, the same area as Radio Exe 107.3.
The man behind the project is the Radio Exe co-owner Mark Tyler, well known to local TV viewers as the face of local news and sport on ITV Westcountry since 1989. He has also worked for BBC Radio, and was a reporter for the Saint and Greavsie ITV football programme in the early 1990s.
Mark and Paul Nero took control of Exeter FM in Summer 2011, and immediately re-branded the station and made a commitment to give the area its most local radio station ever.

Now Mark is expanding the service to provide video news, business, sport, entertainment and information specifically aimed at the same broadcast area. He said: "I have a real passion for truly local broadcasting.
"We've had some fantastic feedback about what we're achieving with Radio Exe, and it's really encouraged us to go ahead with this video service.
"People are changing the way they watch television, and we can now build a considerable local audience through internet linked TVs, computers, ipads and mobile phones."
Another Radio Exe newsreader and producer, Tom Watts, is also part of the launch team, alongside features reporter Georgie Myers, and assistant producer Ryan Ellis.
Each week TV Exe will broadcast a local news round-up, the latest from Exeter City and the Exeter Chiefs, interviews with local decision makers, entertainment reports and thought provoking items about local issues that really matter.
The station will also broadcast public opinion about local issues. TV Exe will even showcase viewer films, and give anyone with a passion for local news and film making a chance to get involved.
Viewers are encouraged to submit local videos filmed on a domestic camera or a mobile phone.
Mark said: "We see this as very much a community project and we want as many people involved as possible."
