Covid-19 and the UK media: An update on the opportunities and challenges for communications

In March, we collated a number of initial insights from media following the UK Government’s imposition of strict guidance affecting how we live, work and interact with others due to the impact of COVID-19.

Today, although there has been some minor lifting of these measures, every day we are seeing the social and economic implications made by the crisis – both in this country and globally.

Against this, nearly two months on, the time felt right to review what further impacts there have been, and what this means for brands and businesses in terms of how they deal with the media.

On a daily basis, our teams are speaking with media contacts across all sectors to better understand how COVID-19 is impacting how they work, what they cover, the impact on the media they work for, their news agenda, how we can support them, and the challenges they expect in both the short and long-term.
