Torin Douglas Torin Douglas | 10:41 UK time, Tuesday, 30 March 2010

I'm the BBC's media correspondent and this is my brief selection of what's going on.

The Guardian reports that the BBC has been told by the BBC Trust to delay the launch of its iPhone apps for news and sport, after complaints by the Newspaper Publishers Association.

The Press Complaints Commission has upheld a complaint against a blog for the first time. The Spectator columnist Rod Liddle was censured after claiming on the magazine's website that the "overwhelming majority" of violent crime in London was carried out by young Afro-Caribbean men reports the Guardian.

Ofcom has said internet service providers are still not delivering the promised broadband speeds reports the BBC and the Times.

In the Daily Mail Sue McGregor adds her voice to those criticising the Government plans to switchover to digital radio.

Claudia Winkleman is taking Jonathan Ross's place as host of Film 2010. The BBC and the Sun report that she says it's her dream job and she even lives next to an Odeon.

There is little consensus in the papers about who came out on top in the TV debate between Chancellor Alistair Darling and his Tory and Lib Dem counterparts as reflected in the BBC newspaper review.
