Industry heads to Cambridge

The biggest event in the radio calendar gets underway in Cambridge today. The Radio Festival 2007 will see hundreds of radio people from all sectors gather to hear about the latest developments and ideas from those selected to speak on our behalf.

Whilst official registration does not start till 5:30pm, various events such as TechCon and Radio People are taking place this morning and afternoon. A new event named ‘foot in the door’ will welcome students who want to enter the radio industry, and give them chance to chat with industry pros.

The first official event is the GMG Debate at 6:30pm in the Cambridge Union Society's famous chamber modelled on the House of Commons. Phil Riley, CEO of Chrysalis Radio will be supported by the former editor of the Sunday Telegraph, Sarah Sands and the author and comedienne Louise Rennison, proposing the motion "This House Believes That Regulation is Strangling Radio". Speaking against will be Tim Suter, who's responsible for content and standards at Ofcom, Stephen Whittle chair of the BTRS and the comedy writer and grumpy old man David Quantick. Ed Stourton from the Radio 4 Today programme will preside and contributions from the floor will be welcomed. has set up camp in Cambridge and will be bringing news and gossip from the events via a daily round up and mini-blog. Our mini-blog will appear in the top right hand corner of our homepage so keep our homepage open for automatic updates.
