The media magazine, mostly moderated by Andreas Stopp , was broadcast on Saturdays from 5:05 p.m. and in the initial phase also accompanied the privately financed radio that was developing at the time. After 24 years and more than 1200 programs, the program was discontinued in March 2017 and instead the new weekday afternoon magazine from 3:35 p.m. was established. The new media program was named “@mediasres”, based on in medias res and was directed by Stefan Koldehoff , who also designed it , until November 2018 . On December 1, 2018, Bettina Schmieding took over the management. Like its predecessor, the program is also available as a podcast and has its own portal on the Deutschlandfunk website.

It sees itself neither as an advertising platform for the programs of the Deutschlandradio nor the public broadcasting, whose work is monitored just as critically as that of the private media.
