Meet the dynamic duo behind the scenes at Victoria Buzz (PODCAST)


You’ve read our articles, participated in our live videos, shared feedback on our content, and followed us on our journey to find out everything that’s happening in and around Victoria.

Now, we’re bringing you a behind-the-scenes glance at the people who make the magic happen, courtesy of a podcast hosted by former radio celebrities Forbes and Marshall.

In a first of its kind episode, Forbes & Marshall dive into how Victoria Buzz evolved into who we are today through an exclusive interview with the company’s founder Mike Kelly and sales & promotions director Nicole Bentham.

Find out how this “local mini-media empire” grew from a backyard operation called ‘Victoria Directory’ in 2012 into a brick-and-mortar office with a team that operates a hyperlocal online publication averaging over half a million readers per month.

In their interview, Mike and Nicole talk about some of our biggest stories and interactions with the audience, the process behind publishing instantaneous yet accurate news stories, our mission to showcase local businesses in an informal, accessible manner, and more.

A few short years were enough to turn the ‘new kids on the block’ into a household name – and we’re ready to talk about what makes us tick!
