This was a unique project where JDG helped RT.com establish a sports section on their website from scratch over an 18 month period, before it was taken in house in 2017. Prior to our involvement, there had been no sports coverage and it soon turned in to a very popular and profit-making arm to RT’s overall offering.
The breadth and depth of work made it a challenging and exciting project, where a whole hosts of sports, clubs and athletes were covered.
