First speakers confirmed for Next Radio conference

Former Head of Content at SCA Craig Bruce is one of the first speakers to be announced for this year’s Next Radio.

Whilst at Australia’s Southern Cross Austereo, Craig helped build the careers of Kyle and Jackie O, Hamish and Andy and created promotional concepts like “the Fugitive”.

Joining Craig, speakers will include Julia Hayball from the University of Gloucestershire, Sam Potts the Head of Radio Promotions at Columbia Records, international radio consultant Francis Currie, Chloe Straw – the Executive Producer at Somethin’ Else for the BBC’s pop networks and Bob FM’s Programme Director/Breakfast host Graham Mack.

Craig says: “I’m delighted to be speaking at Next Radio. I’ll be sharing learnings from some of the biggest names in Australian radio, which is one of the world’s most competitive radio environments. I’m also looking forward to learning more about the UK; and introducing a whole new audience to my Game Changers podcast.”

The event is now in its 6th year and continues to be organised by James Cridland and Matt Deegan.

James says “Next Radio always has a diverse range of speakers and this year’s is no exception. Every session at Next Radio is 9 or 18 minutes which means joining these 6 will be an amazing range of guests we’re announcing over the coming weeks.

Matt adds: “Next Radio is the biggest, most cost-effective radio conference in the country and it’s been designed entirely for the practitioners – the people who make radio or work on radio projects every day. We’ve got a great day lined up and can’t wait for September.”

Next Radio is on 19th September at the Royal Institution in London and tickets are available at
