Listen: Corrie publicity manager radio interview with Pete Price

Coronation Street's publicity manager Alison Sinclair was interviewed by Pete Price on the radio last night.

It's a good interview in which Alison talks about how the Corrie publicity machinery works, how she got into working on Corrie from being a journalist.  She applied for a job in Granada looking after regional and factual programmes and then moved onto the cobbles. Alison's dad was Roger Blyth, who some people might know as a Granada Reports presenter, and is as Alison says "a bit of a Granada legend". Alison's dad, she says, taught her how to break the news, make the news and how to cope with a crisis.

She talks about what the Coronation Street publicity team do to promote the show, promote the storylines and promote the positives about the show too.  And of course she touches on when things go wrong, and how the best bad stories are the ones that never make the press

Unfortunately, the interview abruptly ends after five minutes of audio boo time, which is a real shame as I could have gone on listening to Alison speak.
