Sally Perry is Co-founder, Editor and Reporter at Isle of Wight News from OnTheWight.

Sally has been recognised nationally for her in-depth coverage of the three-week occupation of a factory by workers. As Journalism.co.uk commented at the time, “[they} gave the national and local media a run for its money with its comprehensive coverage of the industrial dispute".

She’s also been awarded for her dogged persistence in highlighting the plight of landlocked Ventnor Undercliff residents following a major landslide (over 200 articles in four+ years).

As well as covering local democracy and holding those in power to account for their decisions, OnTheWight is a champion of The Arts, regularly celebrating the creative talents of Islanders.
