Podcast: A world without TikTok? With Nicola Kemp
The Media Leader Podcast

The Media Leader columnist and Creativebrief editorial director Nicola Kemp joins Omar Oakes and host Jack Benjamin for this candid discussion of the biggest stories in media and advertising this week.

In recent days, there has been a renewed push to ban TikTok in the US, the BBC is considering adding ads to podcasts when they are accessed on commercial sites, the government has disallowed newspapers to be purchased by foreign governments and Michael Kassan’s departure from MediaLink may be signalling an end of the “media power broker”. Meanwhile, Ofcom has once again found GB News in breach of its broadcasting code, but has not doled out a punishment.
