Student Radio Conference recreated as online event
The Student Radio Conference didn’t let the coronavirus crisis get in the way of its event this year as it moved online via Facebook last week.
The #SRACon was planned for Salford but was cancelled at the start of the lockdown.
So organisers instead worked out a three-day conference online and the entire event can be watched for free. There were 15 talks across the three days, and the full schedule can be found below.
Speakers from the radio industry included Global’s Aimee Vivian, Dick Stone and Greg Hughes, Rick Simmonds and Sascha Driver from Bauer plus Jacob Rickard & Chris Sawyer from the BBC.
