Panel: Radio Reimagined
Traditional radio skills are not just augmenting streaming – they are proving how crucial it is to help audiences navigate the huge choice of music available online. The greater the curation, the more different tracks listeners will stream without skipping. Use of human curation and broadcast expertise isn't a nod to the past; it is a recognition of the 'lean-back' experience that mass market audiences want to have with music.
Our invited speakers and audience are going to be exploring the topic “Radio Reimagined” with a panel discussion and networking, looking at the ways in which the worlds of traditional broadcasting and digital music are colliding and drawing inspiration from each other. We'll look at how digital music is evolving to provide a new kind of radio for a modern era.
Moderated by Kellie While, Head of 7digital Creative, the panelists will include broadcasters, technology experts, content creators and providers. Please join us to help answer the question: What’s next for radio?!
