Latest UK Media Industry News

Media Digest is a comfortable place to rest awhile from the hurly-burly of never-ending newsfeeds. The media business, and in particular journalism, generates constant stories about itself and there is no way to keep abreast of the situation – unless, of course, you are a regular visitor to, and reader of, Media Digest.

It’s neither brand journalism nor commercial content. It is, though, exactly what its name suggests that it is: a digest, updated daily, of stories in the media, by the media about the media.

We concentrate on press because that’s the beating heart of this business. Journalists, scurrying about, searching out news stories, like individual search engines. Each news snippet they find, each story they break is a victory for its reporter.

We look at every news source you can imagine from around the world, carefully extract its pulse and craft it into an easily-digested par or two.

We take no revenue from the process and always credit the source of each story with a live link to its origins. This isn’t news aggregation; this is a beneficial process designed to help everyone, readers included.
Media Digest includes a free subscription weekly HTML newsletter ,

It also features The Daily Blot  a platform where young writers can showcase their work to our wide network of publishing and media professionals.

Both Media Digest and The Daily Blot are wholly owned subsidiaries and part of Immediate Network Ltd  a specialist in Brand Journalism and Content Provision for third parties and a white label supplier of content to web developers for their clients.

Media Digest was originally setup to provide the latest media industry news to Immediate Network’s clients. Today it is read across the world by journalists, editors and publishers who like to know what’s going on in their world.

If it’s changing the global media landscape, then it’s on the Media Digest website.

“Before we all sink into a slough of digital dystopian despair, it might be worth considering this: is this a sign of the strength, not weakness, of revelatory journalism in the digital age?”
