Quiet News Day Episode 101

20 Oct

Quiet News Day Episode has past its centenary and we’re now onto episode 101 !

This week your host Scott Douglas is flying solo, as co-presenter Peter Laing is on holiday, and has a packed show full of the best offerings from the world of PR, journalism and social media.

Kicking off episode 101 is an interview with the 2011 CIPR Scotland PRide Awards Young Communicator of the Year Laura Berry, from Holyrood Partnership, who discusses the future of public relations in Scotland and gives some sage words of wisdom for aspiring PR undergraduates.

Next up, Scott looks at the recent comments by author Ewan Morrison about how online freebie hunters are killing culture, and how Scots are leading the way in digital publishing.  

Finally there is a discussion about the Guardian’s decision to publish its news schedule online and how iPad magazine Once wants to be the saviour of photojournalism.

As ever links to everything discussed in this week’s podcast can be found in the show notes below.
