I don’t know why I haven’t created this before but I sure wish I had. The UK Media Owner space is pretty complex and can be tough to navigate. There are brands within brands, publishing specialists, publisher networks, newspaper consortiums, etc.. I’ve spent god know how many hours searching corporate websites for who owns what.
This map is about 75% complete. I’ll be working on fleshing out the ‘leaf’ nodes — the individual titles for each group, or at least the major ones.
I’ve seen similar maps for agencies and for brands/advertisers, but I’ve never seen one for media owners. I thought I’d make a start of one. If you’ve got ideas for additions, changes, etc. please let me know.
