Episode 146 – TV News Wars; Prison Radio success; Is Strictly Thrifty?

Who will launch first? The battle for TV news hots up as Rupert Murdoch’s News UK TV takes on Andrew Neil’s GB News.

Our esteemed media panel this week are producer and director of Wakey! Deborah Coughlin, Hot Pod writer and journalist Caroline Crampton and chief content officer at Somethin’ Else, Steve Ackerman.

They discuss: Facebook announcing a big payday for UK news publishers – but is it too little, too late? Plus, we find out why Prison Radio is the darling of awards worldwide, what needs to be done to tackle disabilty discrimination in our industry… and in the media quiz… you’ll find out why Olly is not the most gifted mimic.

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