Who’s the Guest Speaker?
Andy Puleston, Head of Artist Relations
Prior to joining Chew, Andy was the Digital Editor for Music at the BBC. He was responsible for the leadership and delivery of the digital elements of the new BBC Music uber-brand; including BBC Introducing and the major music events coverage from Glastonbury to Radio 1’s Big Weekend. He also lead the work to conceive the BBC Music Streaming service, as announced in September 2015.
Before moving to BBC Music, Andy worked at Radio 1 as the Head of Digital where he was responsible for all of the radio station's digital platforms - including the award-winning bbc.co.uk/radio1 and the social media portfolio.
Andy is a founding member of the BBC Playlister service (which became BBC Music) and was instrumental in its conception and development. He enlisted DJs Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Mary-Anne Hobbs, B Traits, MistaJam, Fearne Cotton and more to help launch the service. Playlister arrived to critical acclaim and was nominated for both a Webby and a Radio Academy Award.
He also made the transition into programme making for Radio 1 where he was Executive Producer for the station’s specialist shows including Gilles Peterson, Fabio & Grooverider, Annie Nightingale, The Radio 1 Rock Show, Bobby Friction & Nihal and Huw Stephens.
