Description

Commercial radio is booming but what happens next?


Come and hear Steve Parkinson, Group Managing Director of Bauer Media, Europe's largest commercial radio group with major brands in the UK including Magic, Absolute, Kiss, and the recently acquired Jazz FM. He will be in Conversation with Helen Boaden, former BBC Director of Radio, about how commercial radio audiences and revenues are growing strongly in the UK and how the sector is successfully managing digital disruption compared to almost everywhere else in the media.

Why? What's the future of radio - for broadcasters and listeners?

How has it changed and how will it change in the future?

Are audiences vulnerable to streaming services like Spotify?
