Rupert Steps Back, Toxic Brand and RTS roundup

Rupert’s gone, and Lachlan wins Succession - Matt Deegan looks back over seven decades of Murdoch Senior’s media empire, with Charlotte Tobitt (Press Gazette) & Chris Lochery (Popbitch).

Plus: the media’s twisted relationship with Russell Brand. From Sachsgate to Dispatches... will broadcasters ever learn lessons?

Also on the programme: the media decamped to Cambridge for the annual RTS get-together. Kate Bulkley tells you all you need to know. And why are local newsrooms striking?

All that, plus in the media quiz... we crunch the numbers.
