Founders

The Media Society was founded in 1973 to provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge and opinion between those in public and political life, the professions, industry and education.

It aims to involve members of the public in a continuing debate on the role of mass communication in a democratic society.

Its first President was Sir Geoffrey Cox. Lord Jacobson was Vice President.
