Episode 114 – Guardian bounces back; Danny Baker gets the sack

Olly Mann presents your regular insight into the media industries with Channel 4 historian Maggie Brown and deputy editor of metro.co.uk, Alex Hudson.

This week: The Guardian turns a profit for the first time in decades – so should other newspapers liberate their news from behind a paywall? Danny Baker gets his marching orders from the BBC; As Channel 4 opens its new HQ in Leeds, PACT launches an accelerator programme for independent production companies in the region; plus, could negative coverage of sensitive issues turn newsrooms into hostile environments? Plus, it’s a battle of legends in the Media Podcast Quiz.

A PPM / Rethink Audio Production, produced by Peter Price and Matt Hill.
