Commissioners from some of the UK’s biggest radio networks are speaking at the upcoming Nations & Regions Media Conference this year.
The annual event, part of the Salford International Media Festival, will see sessions on radio visualisation, the BBC World Service, the future of radio production outside the M25 and a session on developments in the commercial radio sector.
Ed Vaizey is attending, delivering a keynote, along with BBC Radio 4’s weekly Media Show presenter Steve Hewlett.
There’ll also be an extended Meet the Radio Commissioners event where independent production companies and freelance producers will have a chance to put their ideas directly to radio commissioning editors.
Commissioners attending so far include Mohit Bakaya from BBC Radio 4, Robert Gallacher from Radio 2 and 6Music, Andy Worrall from Radio 1, Richard Maddock from 5 live, Kerry McGeever and Ed Richmond from Radio Wales, Yynr Williams from Radio Cymru, Jeff Zycinski from Radio Scotland and talkSPORT’s Liam Fisher.
