The Channel

The Channel is the international media magazine published by the AIB, with news, features, comment, analysis and profiles.

It is the broadcasting industry's only international orientated magazine that covers broad areas of broadcasting, from strategy to technology, programming to distribution, journalism to production, management to regulation. The magazine is read by senior executives, technologists, producers, editors and journalists in media companies throughout the world.

Over the past  two decades, the AIB's international media magazine  The Channel has grown into a well-respected publication with a global readership of professionals in all sectors of the media industry. Now The Channel has moved online with a more flexible format. This allows us to upload and archive in-depth interviews and features with media companies in all parts of the world without having to adhere to a set publication deadline - we will be publishing interviews and articles online throughout the year.
