Three former newspaper colleagues have reunited to launch a new digital content agency specialising in content planning, research and creation.

Katie Oxtoby, Vicky Carr and Jenni Moulson, who have started The Content Market, previously worked for Johnston Press (JP) in Leeds and Harrogate before pursuing careers in freelance journalism and PR.

Jenni Moulson, who left her role as Harrogate Advertiser business editor five years ago to found Haig PR, said the new agency recognised the changing needs of businesses in a digital age.

“In a digital age, social media channels are overflowing with average content and as journalists we can offer intelligent, well-written articles that people will notice, read and share,” she said.

Vicky Carr left JP in 2012 to run her freelance journalism and copywriting business Verve Words and Katie Oxtoby worked on the Harrogate newsdesk until June this year.

Together, they will combine their experience of more than 45 years in journalism, PR and copywriting to provide high-quality content for businesses in all sectors.
