This week, Richard Reeves, the Managing Director of the UK’s Association of Online Publishers (AOP) talks to us about the progress on their Ad Quality Charter, what the lack of barrier to entry to publishing online means for premium online publishers, and how Facebook and Google engage with the association’s member publishers.
He also explains what he made of Jonah Peretti’s suggestion for a mega-merger of online publishers.
In the news round-up we discuss the future of news on smart speakers, the reported failure to launch of YouTube Red, and give a plug to The Correspondent.
