MEDIA: Will It Be Streams That Kill The Radio Star?

As the streaming services start to compete with conventional radio, what next for the more traditional brands still to be found on the FM dial? Is the radio industry in danger of losing a generation of listeners to the internet? Or do traditional radio stations – and the traditional radio experience – still have a key role to play? Video didn’t kill the radio star, but what now?

We plot the future of radio with 7digital’s Deputy CEO Pete Downton, BBC Radio 1 Producer Kate Holder, Folder Media’s Creative Director Matt Deegan and Nats Spada from Brighton’s own youth radio venture Platform B.

This session is part of The Media Conference presented by CMU Insights.
