#118 - Pop goes the controller; Prioritising PSBs; Channel 5 profits; Influencers held to account - The Media Podcast with Olly Mann

Olly Mann is joined by managing director of Gold Wala, Faraz Osman and founder of the Don’t Skip podcast network Christina Moore

The BBC goes pop with a brand new controller, the tabloids are rocked by a big legal settlement, and there’s more drama with the tax status of on-air talent.

Plus why you might be a celebrity without even knowing it (it’s all to do with your follower count) and can Channel 5 make money by going highbrow?

And in the Media Podcast Quiz, dead formats get the kiss of life as we play In With The Old.

We’ll be back in August with a special podcast from the Edinburgh TV Festival.

The Media Podcast is a PPM Production. Produced by Rebecca Grisedale-Sherry
