We’re delighted to launch Media Moments 2018, an indepth look at the key publisher trends of this year and what publishers might expect in 2019. Although summarising a year’s worth of publishing developments and innovation into a single report is a formidable task, the team at Media Voices – Peter Houston, Esther Kezia Thorpe and Chris Sutcliffe – have done a superlative job of extracting those trends that publishers need to know, right now. This shouldn’t be any surprise; after all, this is the same team that brought us the renowned State of the Media Report from The Media Briefing. We’d also like to thank this report’s sponsor – Sovrn – whose participation has made its publication possible.
