Thirteen months after the search began, BBC Studios finds their new boss is the same as the old one. Why has the appointment taken so long? Matt Deegan is joined by media writer Maggie Brown, Newsweek International editor Alex Hudson and Endelman’s Karin Robinson to discuss this and the week’s other media news.
Also on the show: over in Europe the radio industry has been getting together for Radio Days Europe, looking at the fortunes of broadcasters during the pandemic – is confidence running low in the audio sector?
All that plus: the rise and rise of substack, has Channel 4 neglected its hard of hearing audiences and, in the Media Quiz, we see who’s dropped onto our casting couch.
A PPM & Rethink Audio production, produced by Matt Hill and Peter Price. Support the making of this series at themediapodcast.com/donate
