Episode 142 – Channel Four Sale, GB News Plans, BBC’s Oxbridge Problem, Local Newspapers Linked To Election Turnout

Olly Mann is joined by co-host of ‘Fortunately…’ and Woman’s Hour Jane Garvey, international editor of Deadline, Jake Kanter and print journalist at Hello magazine, Elizabeth Carr-Ellis.

On today’s show: Is the government about to sell off Channel 4? Does the BBC have an Oxbridge problem? And can the lure of Andrew Neil entice viewers to news channel newbie GB News?

Plus, we explore the link between local newspaper circulation and voter turnout. And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have turned down the chance to play the Media Podcast Quiz, because they’ve signed to Netflix.

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