Episode notes

On this edition of The Media Podcast we're joined by Alex Hudson from Newsweek and Media Pod GOAT, Paul Robinson, where we ask, is the end nigh for Newsnight? Ratings continue to slide, budgets about to be cut, and they’ve just lost their editor. So what's next for the flagship news show?

Also on the programme, a new report show's that just three publishers dominate newspapers, but really, does it matter?

And there's big news from big streamers with YouTube announcing new channels and platforms, while Netflix subscriptions have slowed.

All that, plus in the media quiz... we guess the mystery voice (of news).

All that, plus in the media quiz, we play Friend Or Foe? A Rethink Audio production, produced by Ollie Peart with support from Matt Hill
