The Media Show, presented by Conor Brophy, returns to RTÉ Radio 1 today, Sunday February 1 at 7:00pm for a 13-week run.

The makers of the series say it "will get under the skin of major and minor media stories in a punchy, jargon-free and accessible way that will make it enjoyable for a wider, broad based audience".

In the opening show, Brophy will talk to an Irish journalist who is currently working for Al Jazeera and another Irish journalist who worked for them in the past. 

Also on today's running order will be the art of headlining writing, a discussion on media ownership and a short play performed by Paul Tylak and Tara Flynn set in a newsroom.
