The Gosport Globe is owned and operated by GOSPORT GLOBE COMMUNITY PUBLICATIONS C.I.C. This website was launched back in May 2021 following seven years as a PDF weekly newspaper and aims to use digital technology to ensure fast publication of the stories to our readers. 

Our Managing Director is Connor Steel, who first joined the Globe team in January 2019 and has become a key contributor alongside his full time role as a civil servant. He has strong connections to local groups and organisations alongside being a regular face in the media box at Gosport Borough Football Club on a Saturday afternoon (for home games). He is further a strong supporter of people with disabilities due to having Cerebral Palsy, but he stubbornly doesn’t let the ‘wobbliness’ get in the way of anything he wants to achieve.  

Our Editorial Director is Trigo Neo Starden, who is a senior international journalist and consultant for various trade industries. His previous experience includes work for Metro TV and CNN Indonesia, and still working as foreign presenter for Bali TV, his ambition is to become the first Southeast Asian person as TV Presenter in the UK, whilst his current projects include recruiting Indonesian nurses in Britain and being a pioneer in green energy Indonesia movements. Trigo is a member of the National Union of Journalists and has strong connections with current Government ministers (particularly trade departments); Trigo hopes to bring forward to support the Globe going forward.  

Our Editorial Consultant is Robin Young, who – together with IT expert Tog Porter – founded the Globe in 2014 and has been involved in the newspaper industry for more than 50 years.  After working as a journalist / editor across many locations, he combines his duties as a carer with part-time study through the Open University.  A Life Member of the National Union of Journalists, Robin has a wide number of contacts within Gosport and Fareham and is always willing to provide support and advice to anybody who may be considering a career in the ever-expanding field of journalism.
