#9 - Scotland debate update, Company magazine closes, Edinburgh preview
Media discussion and analysis from makers and thinkers in the industry. Olly Mann is joined this week by Jake Kanter of Broadcast Magazine and Steve Ackerman, MD of Somethin’ Else.
As the BBC announces plans to broadcast the second Scottish referendum debate broadcast live across the UK, our pundits discuss STV’s bizarre decision to restrict access to online for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Plus, we hear how Scottish indies feel about their future prospects in an independent Scotland.
Also on the programme: the latest magazine ABCs are revealed, with good news for Good Housekeeping and the Economist’s digital strategy - but it’s the end of the road for Company as it goes online only; how long before the NME follows suit?
Plenty of column inches have been dedicated to the memory of comedian Robin Williams, but have publishers been responsible in their reporting of a celebrity suicide - and have these responsibilities changed in the new media landscape?
Plus, there’s a preview of the Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival and a big ol’ pow-wow on the role of native advertising in digital media.
