Cheerful faces at Prospect towers after September’s issue, which is in the shops today, received lots of attention in the national media.
Peter Morris’ exposé of the Guardian’s risky financial arrangements made the Daily Telegraph.
The Telegraph (and also the Mail) picked up on No 10 adviser David Halpern’s opinion piece on the benefits of the Big Society, particularly his approval of “patient hotels” to let friends and family members help care for the ill.
On Wednesday, James Fergusson appeared on the Today programme to discuss his cover story about talking to the Taliban (listen again here), and the same evening, Prospect’s assistant editor Mary Fitzgerald was interviewed on Edinburgh and the future of comedy on Radio 5Live (listen again here—about one hour 40 into the programme).
Arts and Books editor Tom Chatfield also recently appeared on Irish radio station 4FM to discuss the rise of the app and how the way we use media is changing.
And to ice the cake, the latest circulation figures show that Prospect is currently the fastest-growing current affairs magazine in Britain.
