About Us

Who is behind Sappest?

Sappest has been created by veteran broadcast and print editors, journalists and technicians for media outlets worldwide.

Sappest’s founders have worked in international and national radio and television newsrooms and broadcast galleries, as well as in the field covering breaking news around the globe.

They have also written and taken pictures for international, national and regional print newspapers and magazines, as well as myriad online sites.

But even though Sappest’s veteran journalist founders know exactly what newsrooms need when stories break, they did not have the technical know-how to make this app happen.

That has been down to our app building supremos, James Buckley and Adrian Thurley, who have worked for hundreds of hours to make sure the Sappest app does what it says on the tin; harnessing the very latest technology available.

Another founder of Sappest, Jack Gilliat, is a professional international livestream director and he brings his technical knowledge to the livestream arena which we know is becoming increasingly important for media organisations worldwide.
