Meet the Team

Milton Brown – Chief Executive Officer

Briefly describe your role at KLTV:

My role is to ensure the aims and objectives and strategies are carried out to the very best of the organisation’s ability and capacity. I am the CEO and founder of Kirklees Local TV, which documents news, promotes civic activism, research and encourages discussion on historical events, current social concerns and matters of culture that affect Huddersfield and West Yorkshire. I am also undertaking a PhD at The University of Huddersfield on the experience of African Caribbean people navigating race and constructing identity in post-war Britain. I’m an alumnus of the United Nations for People of African descent.

What do you enjoy the most about working with KLTV?

I love the digital industry, creating stories from an idea to webcast and video production. I also love the people, the rich mix of diverse members in the organisation and also who we work with across the region is one of the best things I enjoy leading and working in KLTV

Who is your role model and why?


My mother and father. To me they were trailblazers. They weren’t frightened to challenge themselves or stand up and challenge racial and social injustice. They proactively made a positive difference in their community.

What are your hobbies?

I love to read and continually enrich my knowledge and understanding of past and present. I enjoy to play chess; the game provides me with critical thinking skills in a fun way. I cycle and walk, listen to music and socialize with close family and friends.

What music/musicians do you enjoy?

Jazz-funk, soul, hip hop, rap, country rock, blues and soul

A quote that resonates with you:

“Only the oppressed can liberate themselves and in doing so will liberate their oppressors.” – Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed

Christopher Morgan – Chief Editor

Briefly describe your role at KLTV:

I’m the Chief Editor and Manager of Social Media. It’s my job to ensure that our content looks and sounds great, is free of errors, and reaches and engages with our local communities.

What do you enjoy the most about working with KLTV?

I enjoy the friendly and collaborative work environment. Everyone is given the chance to learn and grow while working and truly be part of a team. As someone who was born and raised in Huddersfield, it is also a pleasure to work within the local community and explore all the different areas of the region.

Who is your role model and why?

As a single parent of two boys, my mother is and continues to be my greatest source of inspiration. She taught me to show respect, have passion and project responsibility, all while being kind and thoughtful of others.

What are your hobbies?

Like most, I enjoy reading books (fiction and nonfiction) and watching films and television (mostly sci-fi and fantasy). I also enjoy video editing and practising photography in my spare time, along with walking and hiking.

What music/musicians do you enjoy?

I like most kinds of music and try to stay somewhat genre-agnostic. I grew up on classic rock artists such as Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith, and these days I’m listening to artists such as Phoebe Bridges, Halsey, and The Beaches.

A quote that resonates with you:

“I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.” – Invictus by William Ernest Henley

Leah Conway – Digital Production Quality Manager & Video Editor

Briefly describe your role at KLTV:

I am a video editor, journalist and the Director of Quality Assurance at KLTV

What do you enjoy the most about working with KLTV?

I enjoy the creative and friendly working environment. Whatever work you are doing you are always supported and encouraged in your endeavours.

Who is your role model and why?

I would say my parents are my role models because they always uphold values of hard work, perseverance and respect

What are your hobbies?

I enjoy watching film and tv, reading and listening to music and podcasts

What music/musicians do you enjoy?

I like a range of music but at the moment artists such as Rationale, Khalid and Raleigh Ritchie are my favourites

A quote that resonates with you:

“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” – A.A. Milne

Ryan Bramley – Digital Strategist

Briefly describe your role at KLTV:

I spent almost two years working as a volunteer with KLTV as fieldwork for my PhD project on community-led filmmaking. During this period, I spent time performing just about every role imaginable: camera operator; interviewer; presenter; video editor; social media manager; researcher; minute-taker; and studio production assistant – to name just a few! I’ve since become a Member of the Board, but I’m never shy to pick up the camera again.

What do you enjoy the most about working with KLTV?

There’s a real vibrancy about the organisation – a desire, shared by volunteers past and present – to bring something positive to the local community. And through those efforts, we do something good for ourselves, too: we help each other to grow, personally and professionally; not just as journalists and media-makers, but as people, too.

Who is your role model and why?

My biggest inspiration for working in community filmmaking is the late Māori (indigenous New Zealand) filmmaker, Barry Barclay, who once said of filmmaking, “you need in a way, I believe, to look at who you are making the film for, and exactly what kind of truth you’re telling.”

At KLTV, we are in the business of telling stories from this community, for this community. If those stories resonate with people from afar, then that’s a big bonus. But first and foremost, we try to share the ‘kind of truth’ that the people of this community want to tell, in their own voice.

What are your hobbies?

I’m a lifelong Barnsley supporter (sorry, Huddersfield!), so I spend many a miserable Saturday following them. But really, I love all sport, and recently became a fan of Aussie Rules football, which is so different compared to the ‘soccer’ we play here. Believe it or not, we have our own Aussie Rules team right here – the Huddersfield Rams!

What music/musicians do you enjoy?

When I’m wanting to get myself pumped up for a run, I put on IDLES, and anything else that has a brash noise and a cutting edge about it. But on a lazy day, you’ll probably catch me listening to The Horrors, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, and Frank Turner.

A quote that resonates with you:

“Every culture has a right and a responsibility to present its own culture to its own people.” – The National Organisation of Māori Communicators (‘Te Manu Aute’)

Dr Heather Norris Nicholson – Researcher & Educational Consultant

Briefly describe your role at KLTV:

I am a Researcher and Educational Consultant at KLTV. I joined the team at KLTV in 2017 and since then my roles have been very varied. I was a Project Coordinator for Windrush: The Years After (2018-19).

I am involved in many activities – writing, research, interviewing, camera work, archiving, school workshops as well as community and academic outreach. Working with KLTV and seeing how the team developed to produce so much as part of this NLHF supported project was very enjoyable. More generally, I help with project development, historical research, heritage-related funding proposals and educational curriculum work.

What do you enjoy the most about working with KLTV?

I really enjoy the sense of commitment and dedication underpinning KLTV’s work. There is a belief in the capacity to bring about change and to offer opportunities to enable that to happen. Working at KLTV constantly involves thinking about empowerment and building understanding through reaching out and enabling others to feel confident, respected and valued. Trust is key to unlocking this positive spirit: trying new things and helping each other to reach untapped potential and make discoveries is part of the pleasure of being at KLTV.

Who is your role model and why?

I have encountered many people who have inspired me in different ways. Listening to and learning from their stories has helped on my own journey.

What are your hobbies?

My family life is always busy but I have a range of interests that include travel, culture, history and the environment, walking, reading, films, art and theatre.

What music/musicians do you enjoy?

My choice is fairly eclectic and depends on my mood. Sometimes classical music can be sublime; sometimes it’s just the rhythm, the lyrics and associations that can powerful. The sounds of the natural world are important to me too.

A quote that resonates with you:

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust

Lincoln Oakley – Social Participation & Cultural Equality

Briefly describe your role at KLTV:

I have only recently become a director at KLTV, supporting my fellow directors looking at new marketing strategies and business growth.

What do you enjoy the most about working with KLTV?

The energy and passion radiating from the workers and my fellow directors at meetings.

Who is your role model and why?

John H. Johnson. A pioneer that represented Black America in the mainstream media in the early ’50s, a position that Mr Johnson had to fight for and overcome all the racism of corporate America during the period.

What are your hobbies?

Coaching the younger generation develop business ideas. I also like scuba diving and snorkelling in open waters.

What music/musicians do you enjoy?

I like an array of music including Hip Hop, Soul and Dancehall. As for specific musicians, Beenie Man (Anthony Moses Davis), Sam Cooke, and Grandmaster Flash (Joseph Saddler) to mention a few.

A quote that resonates with you:

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.” – Barack Obama
