Deep Dive


Jacob Cohen Donnelly is a General Manager, B2B at Morning Brew, and a writer of A Media Operator that has now become a go-to niche newsletter for media.


When choosing the free version, you are supposed to receive only one piece of content a week, but actually, it varies from a week. You can expect around two content pieces a week - up to two newsletter issues and/or a podcast episode.


The paid subscription of A Media Operator costs $20. You will get the newsletter two to three times a week - definitely on Tuesdays and Fridays and a podcast episode now and then. The subscription provides premium members-only content (one additional issue on Fridays), access to the archive, the possibility to leave comments and participate in discussion threads. A members-only Slack channel is on the way as well.
