Global swoop again, Tik Tok explodes… and a farewell to Jamal

The BBC lets two more leading broadcasters slip away to Global. This time it’s Emily Maitlis and Jon Sopel. Why does it keep happening? And what’s the strategy at LBC? Gill Hind (Enders Analysis) & Faraz Osman (Gold Wala) join Matt Deegan to discuss the week’s media news.

Also on the programme: how do you explain the invasion of Ukraine to an 8 year old? We spoke to Anna Bassi, Editor in Chief of The Week Junior, to find out how a print magazine for kids is in the top four print publications in the UK.

Plus, we pay tribute to SBTV founder Jamal Edwards who passed away this week, and look at what Linkedin are doing to support podcasts.
