#154 - Obit Category One: The Death of Prince Philip; Former Culture Minister Ed Vaizey Tipped for Ofcom; Government Vetoes Channel 4 Reappointments

Olly Mann is joined by the entertainment director of Heat magazine and host of the PilotTV podcast, Boyd Hiltonwriter, editor and campaigner currently working at Hello magazineElizabeth Carr-Ellis, and broadcast consultant and director of RadioTechConAnn Charles.

This week: How might coverage of future high-profile deaths be adjusted in the wake of this week’s 100,000 complaints about the BBC’s handling of Prince Philip’s death? We ask how much is too much and should there be a difference between scheduling on linear and digital channels?

Plus: Is Ed Vaizey set to be the new face of Ofcom? Should the government have vetoed two reappointments to the Channel 4 board? Matt Kelly reveals his plans for the new, New European and what’s next for Buzzfeed UK?

And in the Media Podcast Quiz, step inside the elevator as the panel guess which pitches were successful at this week’s MipTV festival.
