In Journalism Weekly: GMG results are latest sign that five-year media downturn is finally ending

By Dominic Ponsford

Five years after media share prices first went into meltdown, the long awaited 'green shoots' of recovery are finally in sight.

So says Guardian Media Group chief executive Andrew Miller in an exclusive interview as his national newspapers division celebrates its lowest losses since 2008. Elsewhere, indications from Emap, Telegraph Media Group and Mail Online suggest the business prospects for UK journalism companies are finally looking up.

Also in this week's Press Gazette – Journalism Weekly:

  • The NUJ faces a backlash over its support for council-run newspapers in the face of a Government bid to ban them
  • As Independent journalists mull strike action over 27 compulsory redundancies, bosses warn that the future of the print title could be in question if cuts are not made
  • Guido Fawkes news editor Harry Cole on Chris Huhne, Private Eye and why Lobby journalism is "one big scandal away from being blown open"
  • Agency boss Natasha Courtnay-Smith rails against the editors who commission work and then forget to pay for it
  • And in Axegrinder: Our Ban the Byline Bandits campaign turns its attention to The Independent and Express Newspapers journalists get an extremely underwhelming 'salary enhancement'.
