The Radio Independents Group is making a last call for its landmark indie radio production census.
Mike Hally, Vice-Chair of the RIG, today called on all indie radio production companies to complete the online industry Census before this Friday’s closing date.
Hally said: “This is the first time we’ve sought to survey our industry for five years, and it couldn’t come at a more crucial time as the BBC Trust looks at BBC radio content supply, and BBC Radio executives develop their response to the challenge laid down by Tony Hall’s ‘Compete or Compare’ strategy”.
“Any company that would like to see the opportunity to compete for more BBC commissions should complete this census”.
RIG has emphasised that all indie radio production companies, whether or not members of RIG, should complete the Census, the data from which will be confidentially analysed by the respected independent media research company Enders Analysis.
Hally said: “all those completing the survey can be fully reassured that Enders will deal with the data in confidence and no-one involved with production will see anything except fully anonymised statistics”.
The deadline for responses is Friday 13 February, after which RIG cannot guarantee response data will be included.
The survey, which is open to all active independent radio production companies in the UK, can be found here.
