First past the post again williamhillmedia.com

Ahead of the game as always, William Hill have become the UK's first bookmakers to provide a site purely dedicated to the media. Our official site at www.wiliamhillmedia.com was launched at the beginning of this week.

The idea was originated in response to growing media-related enquiries; it now offers all members of the media a handy, 24x7 on-line resource for betting-related information.

William Hill spokesperson, Serena Momberg says "With on-line betting becoming the fastest growing sector of the betting industry, we thought it appropriate to complement our growing online service with a round-the-clock media related enquiry service".

The site offers journalists an instant update of the most recent press releases, in all betting categories ranging from sport and politics to unusual bets. It also offers a backbone of corporate information. Details about special events such as the William Hill Sports Book Of The Year Award, Man V Horse Marathon 13 October and the Pigeon v Greyhound rematch race, 24 July 2001 also available.

The site combines an ingenious design with a user-friendly layout - plus a cutting-edge search engine that can delve deep into the vaults of William Hill's substantial online archive.

With the new site, William Hill, who have already twice been short-listed for the prestigious Annual PR Weekly Award, are hoping to keep their service many lengths clear of the competition.

No registration is necessary and you can also link straight to our tax-free betting sites if you fancy a bet on something you've just read about.
