#45 - a promising dawn for New Day and Radio 2 Country pops up

John Whittingdale takes a break from Brexit to address the issues the matter to the media (and avoid a few others). Olly Mann talks loopholes and Leveson II with Faraz Osman (Managing Director, Lemonade Money) and Alex Hudson (Deputy Editor, metro.co.uk).

Also on the programme, as the BBC bring back its pop-up station Radio 2 Country, we head to Maida Vale to discuss how these temporary channels are changing the radio brand.

Plus, the New Day is one week old - we take a look at its first five editions... Are there early signs of success for BBC Three’s move online? And the Media Quiz heads to Salford for a spot of natural history.
