Quiet News Day 84

15 Jun

Welcome to episode 84 of the podcast which brings together the latest journalism, social media and public relations news and views.

Masters of the mix Scott Douglas and Peter Laing, discuss what has been a troubled week for Scottish media as one of its infamous publications the Daily Record announces a series of job cuts and a shake up to it’s organisation. The former jewel of Scots news crown, has struggled to battle against its more successful counterparts, but can the paper bounce back from these shocking cuts? As always the duo have very different views….

Among the doom and gloom however there are couple of media success stories including Facebook’s $1billion IPO and John Boothman’s appointment as Head of Public Affairs at the BBC.

Links to everything discussed, as always are found in the show notes below.
