“You’ve got to put the money on something that is going to deliver for you in some form or another, whether that’s ratings, revenue or reputation”.

For the final Broadcast Intelligence podcast of the week, Channel 5’s director of programmes Ben Frow brings us up to speed with his commissioning strategy and vision for the channel in true Frow style.

This week, Broadcast Intelligence have been releasing a new podcast daily, featuring interviews with channel executives from Amazon, ITV, BBC and Channel 4. To find out more, you can listen to each of their podcasts here.

These sessions were recorded by Broadcast Intelligence’s Commissioner Index at our sponsored “meet the controller” sessions at the Edinburgh TV Festival.

Other episodes of the Media Business Podcast will be released monthly and explore a wide range of topics. It is produced by MBI, publisher of Screen International and Broadcast.
