Episode 159 – C4 4 The Chopping Block? UK TV IN EU; Sony Buys Somethin Else;

Joining Olly Mann this week are: Deadline’s international editor, Jake Kanter, podcaster and founder of Don’t Skip Media, Christina Moore and the writer, podcaster and audio critic Caroline Crampton.

This week: It’s deja vu all over again, as the government ponders selling Channel 4 – but is the case for a sale stronger now than it was five years ago? 

Plus, Sony Music Entertainment buys radio indie Somethin’ Else. The EU asks if British TV shows should still count as European content. We reflect on the shaky first fortnight of GB News and take out your copybooks as we’re doing the math in the Media Podcast Quiz.

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