Insightful, credible news about the media, for the media.

The double play is not lost on our readers, who expect no fear or favour from our reportage on the media sector.

The Media Online was launched in 2007 as an affiliate to The Media magazine. Over the past decade it has grown to become a trusted thought leader, offering insight and opinion on social media, digital media and the industry as a whole. We’ve embraced a multimedia approach to add depth to our reportage and, in 2019, the site was updated and a blog was introduced for readers to be able to express their opinions on media-related issues.

Although we carry content from our print partner, we pride ourselves in providing fresh, daily news, opinion pieces and comment from our contributors. Our editorial vision is to provide content that informs, educates and challenges. The Media Online is read by decision makers and influencers in media agencies, media-owning companies, and marketers.
