Hello and welcome to this week’s Quiet News Day Podcast,

With Peter Laing away for a second week Scott Douglas takes to the reigns, for this week’s race through the latest social media, journalism and public relations news.

This week we have not one but two interviews; the first from Tricia Fox a leading PR professional who inadvertently found herself in the middle of a blogosphere furore after a blog about the late Amy Winehouse didn’t go down too well with the online world.

Next up Scott chats to graphic designer and ex Daily Record journalist Martin Kielty about his forthcoming book ‘Old The Front Page’ which takes historical news and changes them into a collection of modern day tabloids. As well as the book Scott and Martin also discuss the longevity of tabloids, the publishing industry, as well as the power of social media marketing.

So lot’s of news and views to keep you going through the day!
