Olly Mann is joined by head of communications at ITN and former editor of Broadcast magazine Lisa Campbell, founder of production house Gold Wala Faraz Osman and Creative Director of Folder Media Matt Deegan.

On today’s show, Ofcom approves Radio 1 Dance to stream on BBC Sounds but commercial rivals are unhappy. Could Apple News’ podcast of print articles help save the world’s biggest newspapers? And in what state is arts and culture journalism as The Guide closes amid losses of £25m at The Guardian.

Plus, the big themes from the virtual Edinburgh International Television Festival 2020.

And in The Media Podcast Quiz we celebrate the winners of the ‘Pand-Emmys’ – the first major industry awards show since the start of the pandemic.
