Mark Stenberg, senior media reporter at AdWeek, joins host Charlotte Henry to discuss some breaking news - the sale of Axios for $525 million.

Also in this episode, what does the delay to the end of third-party cookies mean for publishers? After yet another change to Google’s timetable, many have just decided to continue with their plans for a cookieless future, focussing on first-party data and technology builds. One such example, reported on by Mark, is Reach, the publisher behind the Mirror and local titles such as the Manchester Evening News. It has partnered with data platform company LiveRamp to better monetize its logged-in users.
