MEC chief strategy officer James Hier, Mumbrella Asia editor Robin Hicks and Tim Burrowes held a live Google Hangout  discussing the week’s big media issues.

Hier has been MEC’s strategy chief since 2010. Hicks took up his new post in Hong Kong yesterday.

On the agenda for today’s discussion:

  • In  the light of last night’s appointment of Katie Rigg-Smith as Mindshare boss, do strategists make good CEOs?;
  • The current differences between Australia and other markets;
  • Fairfax’s dramas;
  • The TV ratings battles;
  • Highlights from today’s radio ratings

Today’s format is a new format for Mumbrella as we continue to experiment with live video.
