#61 - How The New European was launched, BBC Studio cuts - The Media Podcast with Olly Mann

Olly Mann is joined by Matt Kelly (The New European) and Professor Lis Howell (City University London) to discuss the week’s top stories.

BBC Studios have announced 15% cuts to its workforce ahead of entering the commercial sector next year - will the move lead to further demoralisation, or a creative revival?

The panel also get to grips with the new Radio Academy awards, Jon Holmes’ noisy departure from the Now Show and wave farewell to the ‘Fake Sheikh’. Plus, there’s a media quiz. Of course.

A PPM Production, produced by Matt Hill. Thanks also to our sponsors Media Masters and our wonderful voluntary subscribers.
