#12 - Trinity Mirror payouts, Emma Watson hoax - The Media Podcast with Olly Mann
Trinity Mirror settles with ten high-profile, phone-hacking claimants and internet pranksters trick the mainstream media twice with the same story. Olly Mann plus guests James Robinson and Lisa Campbell discuss these and other stories from the media week.
Also on the programme, Jeremy Paxman is to anchor Channel 4’s election coverage next year - but what kind of an alternative will he present to Sky and the BBC?
In radioland, there’s good news for the BBC as they make steady progress raising the number of female presenters on local radio - and the panel discuss the announcement of Iggy Pop as the choice for the John Peel Lecture at the Radio Festival 2014.
Plus, we try out another unworkable gameshow format in our Media Quiz... in the hope ITV will develop it for £1m.
