Journalists and broadcasters face so many unique challenges every day, and that’s all part of the excitement of the job, but it’s not without its risks.

As most journalists work on a self-employed, freelance basis, these additional risks have to be considered, and indeed covered, by you, rather than the company you are working for. Journalist insurance is essential within this field as well as media insurance and film insurance dependent upon your profession.

Whilst many acknowledge this as just another requirement of the job, it does open you up to a level of risk that wouldn’t be seen in other professions. For this reason, it’s important to ensure your media insurance policy is created with your needs in mind.

From public liability to professional indemnity insurance, Caunce O’Hara can have you covered in just a few clicks so that you can rest assured that you have the necessary levels of protection for the best premium possible.

What Media Insurance Do I Need?

Build your custom media insurance policy. We offer:

  • Professional Indemnity Insurance

    As a journalist or broadcaster, there are sometimes scenarios that you put yourself in to gain an edge on the competition and get a story before others are able to. With this in mind, it’s important to consider a company that fully understands the differences in insurance for journalists over other professionals and the level of protection required in any given circumstance. With media professional liability insurance you will be protected against any legal claims against you, which can be anything from copyright infringement to contract disputes. Although a situation requiring media professional liability insurance might be rare, it’s still important to ensure you are covered.

  • Business Combined Insurance

    Rather than piecing together lots of individual insurance policies, we provide a business combined insurance policy that includes everything you would need to protect your career and business. This includes public liability insurance, employer’s liability insurance, office contents insurance and directors and officers insurance. This type of media insurance will ensure that you are covered in the event a member of the public makes a claim against you, or if a worker is injured while you are employing them and they make a claim against you. This type of comprehensive media insurance is essential for providing peace of mind.

  • Personal Accident & Sickness Insurance

    When you are your own boss, taking time off work due to injury or illness can be devastating to your earnings. With no sick pay to fall back on, it can be difficult to meet your monthly commitments if you are unable to work for any reason. With personal accident and sickness insurance, you can cover a portion of your salary so you’ll never have to worry about a loss of earnings. Our media insurance policy for personal accident and sickness will ensure you can focus on getting better rather than worrying about money.

  • Travel Insurance

    Journalists and broadcasters travel a lot for work, this is just a fact of the job. With this in mind, it makes sense to protect yourself while you are travelling, whether you’re just travelling across the city for an interview or you’re heading overseas to get the scoop. Our travel insurance for media professionals goes above and beyond by also offering cover for business and personal trips throughout the UK and around the world.

  • Tax Enquiry & Legal Expenses

    Even the cost of getting legal advice can quickly add up when you are facing a legal dispute. We offer all Caunce O’Hara customers access to free legal advice around the clock. When it comes to filing your tax return, it’s very easy to make mistakes, but not so easy to clear these up. With our free legal advice and tax enquiry coverage, you’ll be covered for anything from HMRC investigations to contract disputes.
