Episode 139 – Daily Mail Outshines The Sun; Journalists And Political Unrest; TV Diversity Boost

Olly Mann is joined by planning director at Edelman and host of Democratically 2020, Karin Robinson; director of Creative Media Partners, Paul Robinson; and senior lecturer in sports journalism at the University of East London, Dekan Apajee.

On today’s show: Who’s splashing £30m to boost diversity but asking staff to volunteer for redundancy? The Daily Mail outshines the Sun as Britain’s biggest selling paper, and is the risk to journalists covering civil unrest on the rise?

Plus, we discover why, if you want to be famous, you probably work in advertising…

And in the media quiz, we’ll be “making our mind up” about a Eurovision collaboration between Magic and Netflix.

  1. Mail Online is the success story: and it has grasped the pole position. A good briefing on this trend by this podcast – for me at least.
