#153 - BBC Four Goes Archive Only; Spotify Buys Locker Room; Time Out Revenues Fall

Olly Mann is joined by planning director at Edelman, Karin Robinson, LBC presenter, author and broadcaster Iain Dale and media executive and director of broadcasting at City University London, Professor Lis Howell

This week: BBC Four winds down original commissioning so will an archive-only channel be more high-brow or low-brow than BBC Two?

Spotify joins the live audio conversation by buying Locker Room; Kay Burley deletes references to Sky News from her social media – does this foretell a move to GB News?

Plus: news organisations push for public service news channels to be more prominent on streaming platforms; BBC local radio stations gain county cricket commentaries and, as Time Out revenues fall 59% and the Guardian claims furlough cash, which funding models will work for a post-covid print industry?
