Mumbrellacast: Mumbrella’s top stories of 2020

On the final Mumbrellacast for the year, the whole team pitches in to count down the top stories of 2020. Popular campaigns came from Menulog and Hungry Jacks, thanks to famous faces and famous burgers. But, by far the biggest story was the impact COVID-19 had on the media and marketing industry.

The team looks back on the warning shot to the media industry that was News Corp’s regional closures, the major talent redundancies at Ten, how brands handled  challenging conditions, and reflect on what became of the industry as 2020 rolled on.

To round out the year, the Mumbrellacast team reveals their picks for the biggest news story that came across the desk, from Hugh Marks’ upcoming departure from Nine to Ben Lilley’s purchase of McCann.
