Digital radio event planned for Edinburgh
The local and national digital radio scene will be discussed at a free radio event in Edinburgh next week.
‘This is Radio’ is being held on Thursday 15 March by Digital Radio UK in conjunction with the Radio Academy Scotland, at The Place Hotel on York Place.
The event will celebrate the success of digital radio in Edinburgh and will look at how radio is being re-defined in a smart, voice-controlled world and the opportunity offered by small-scale DAB.
There are now 65 DAB stations broadcasting in Edinburgh and we will hear about the 5 most recent station launches – Rock Sport Radio, Scottish Sun Hits, Scottish Sun Greatest Hits, Scottish Sun 80s and Absolute Radio 90s.
The event will be hosted by Stuart Barrie, Chair of Radio Academy Scotland and the speakers will include Gareth Hydes, Commissioning Editor for Radio, Music and Events, BBC Radio Scotland; Graham Bryce, Group Managing Director of Bauer City Network; Richard Bogie, General Manager of News Scotland; Carol Wyper, Marketing Manager, Scottish Sun; Adam Findlay, Managing Director, New Wave Media, Kevin McAuley, Commercial Director of new station, Rock Sport Radio, and presenter Cat Harvey.
Attendees will also hear from radio historian David Lloyd, who will look back on Edinburgh radio history and Digital Radio UK’s CEO, Ford Ennals and Communications Director Yvette Dore.
This is Radio: Edinburgh will be held at 6-8pm, at The Place Hotel, 33-38 York Place Edinburgh EH1 3HU.
There will be a free welcome drink for attendees and an opportunity to win a digital radio. Attendance is open to all and is absolutely FREE.
