Two media companies have formed a partnership to put on a unique event aimed at inspiring radio news editors.
The Future of Radio News is being organized by worldwide broadcast news agency, Feature Story News and newsleader media consultancy, the new business headed by former BBC London and Capital executive Justin Kings.
The one day event on Saturday June 6th in London has been arranged to challenge and inspire radio editors at a time of ever tightening budgets and uncertainty in the industry.
It will include a key note speech by the Head of Sky News Radio, Andy Ivy who has this year taken over the contract to supply commercial radio in the UK with news. Andy will present his vision of how radio news will develop in the next decade.
There will also be a prediction of the way radio news might sound in ten years time by award winning audio producer, James Stodd.
Practical sessions will include ‘Twenty ideas to make your news stand out.’ Also, ‘The Big One – how to own a story’ with Feature Story News’ News Director, Olly Barratt who covered President Obama’s victory in Washington.
One of the organizers, Justin Kings of newsleader media consultancy says he hopes the day will fill a void: “There are very few opportunities for news editors from either the BBC or commercial stations to meet, get ideas and be inspired. I hope this event will help fill the gap.”
Places for the event are strictly limited. For Editors who require one to one coaching or feedback, this will also be available on Sunday June 7th.
