Britain’s 100 Most Powerful People In The Media For 2014

Google co-founder and chief executive Larry Page has been named the most powerful person in the media for 2014 in the Guardian’s annual power list, the MediaGuardian 100.

More significantly, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been ranked second, Apple’s chief executive, Tim Cook, ranked 3rd, Director general, BBC Tony Hall, ranked 4th, and Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos ranked 5th in the Guardian’s list of the Top 100 figures in the media for 2013.

Mark Zuckerberg

Dick Costolo is placed at number 6 in the Guardian’s influential list of players in the British media scene, while rupert Murdoch makes an appearance at number 7.

Singer Taylor Swift was the highest-placed woman on this year’s list, marking her debut on the MediaGuardian 100 at number 10.

All very worthy, as you would expect.
