Spotlight on Radio Production

A special networking conference with an emphasis on radio production is taking place at the end of this month overlooking Media City UK in Salford Quays.

At the event, BBC Radio 2 will launch its latest search for programme ideas as part of the Radio Production in the North Networking Conference. There will also be a presentation from 5 Live, from several independent production companies and from the developers at MediaCityUK. The day will be hosted by former BBC North West political editor Jim Hancock.

Organised with the support of North West Vision and Media, the conference is the idea of Ashley Byrne, Creative Director of independent radio and TV production company, Made in Manchester.

Ashley told “While TV suffers, radio is more popular than ever. The BBC, GMG and northern independent production companies like Smooth Operations, All Out, Soundscape, Pennine, OutLoud and of course Made in Manchester are already making some of the best programmes on UK radio.

“We’ve comedy, drama and documentary producers and it’s time we made people aware of what we’re doing in the North West, Yorkshire and the North East.”

He added: “Together with the arrival of 5Live in a few years time, there’s every possibility that MediaCityUK can become a real hub for radio as well as television production.”

The conference, which is free to attend, will include one to one sessions where delegates can ‘Meet the Indies’ as well as representatives from 5 Live. And it’s open to anyone who has an interest in radio production in the North.

Ashley says: “Freelance producers, journalists, comedy and drama writers, actors, presenters, students, they’re all welcome on March 31st but people need to register quickly as space is limited.”

The Radio Production in the North Conference will be held in the Compass Room at The Lowry, Salford Quays from 9.30-4.30pm on March 31st. To register you interest and find out more about the day, you should e-mail [email protected] with your contact details.
