Kiss founder Gordon Mac joins Festival board

Gordon Mac is joining the International Radio Festival Advisory Board alongside Tony Price, Scott Cohen and Robert Kraft.

The Kiss FM founder was the youngest ever Managing Director of a radio station and well known for creating the infamous Kiss FM brand in the UK.

“I was deeply honoured to have been invited to the International Radio Festival last year and asked to join the IRF Advisory Board. It was the most refreshing industry event I’ve attended in many years, as it truly was an international festival.” Commented Gordon.

“It was great to see the big corporations rubbing shoulders with the newer, smaller stations to discuss the issues and possibilities available to everyone. The positive collision of brands and ideas really made me feel that the radio industry is set to grow exponentially on the back of new technology and opportunities.”

Gordon has now set up a soul radio station which is expected to launch on DAB later this year.
