The Guardian cancels Media Talk podcast

The Guardian is pulling the plug on the popular Media Talk podcast, first launched in 2006.

Introducing the latest edition covering the Radio Academy Awards, presenter John Plunkett announced the news saying: “After eight glorious years Media Talk is coming to an end. There will be occasional treats from the Media Guardian team and the best way to get them will be through this feed so please stay subscribed.”

Producer Matt Hill has blogged about the changes, saying “It has been an absolute pleasure to produce the last two years with John, and in many ways it’s been the most exciting time: we’ve had the News of the World closure, multiple disasters at the BBC and the rise of Sky as a commissioning powerhouse. And that couldn’t have happened without the insight of contributors such as Lisa Campbell, Helen Zaltzman, Stig Abell, Roy Greenslade, Olly Mann, Sam Delaney, Matt Deegan, Paul Robinson, Maggie Brown, Mark Sweney, Steve Ackerman… and of course, presenter John Plunkett.”

The podcast will finish at the end of May and Matt adds it doesn’t have to end all together: “There’s still thousands of media professionals hungry for an independent talking shop. If you think you might be able to support a new venture, please get in touch.”

The Guardian produced many podcasts each week including Sounds Jewish with Jason Solomons, Football Weekly with James Richardson, Music Weekly with Alexis Petridis and Kieran Yates and Tech Weekly.
