Who cares what the papers say?

The Herald in Scotland has ended daily leader columns - will other papers follow suit?

The leader column has long been a feature of newspapers. But the editor of The Herald, the Scottish broadsheet, has now ended daily leaders, believing that readers can make up their own mind on an issue. Could this set a precedent for other newspapers to follow? Also in the show, two editors discuss making a magazine for their very particular audiences.

Amol is joined by Anna Bassi, editor in chief of The Week Junior, Hattie Brett, editor of Grazia, Katherine Rushton, the Daily Mail's media and technology editor, and Sonia Sodha of The Observer.
