The fifth episode of Press Gazette’s Future of Media Explained is about London’s free business newspaper City AM and how it made it through the  Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.

Entitled “How free newspapers survived Covid, featuring City AM editor Andy Silvester”, the episode hears about the business newspaper’s move to a digital-first operation during an 18-month hiatus for the print newspaper.

Silvester also spoke to Press Gazette’s UK editor Charlotte Tobitt about the free sheet market as a whole, including competitors Evening Standard and Metro, and why he believes print will remain part of the overall package for some time yet.
