Episode 83 – Katz Does Countdown

By 3rd November 2017 The Media Podcast No Comments

Iain Katz leaves Newsnight to take on the top job at Channel 4, former controller Jay Hunt announces she’s off to work for Apple… with careers spanning print to tv to online, what do these appointments say about the way the media is changing? Media writer Maggie Brown and Metro.co.uk’s deputy editor Alex Hudson discuss.

Also on the programme: as the Weinstein scandal moves to Westminster, we look at how UK newsrooms are attempting to drain the swamp, and we crunch ALL the numbers: from Bake Off to the latest RAJARs, via the Guardian’s big reveal on voluntary donations.

And in the Media Quiz, we play Location, Location, Location… Location.

A PPM Production, produced by Matt Hill. Your donations keep this show going: to help make more episodes, please give generously.
