New speakers at Radiodays Europe 2013 in Berlin

Sharing Radio´s Future – new speakers

Radio is a really vibrant and creative media business. That is an obvious conclusion looking at all the proposals for next year´s conference programme. New speakers are now being announced.

 The Programme Group met recently in Berlin to discuss the topics and speakers for next year in Berlin 18-19 March. Peter, Nik, James, Susanne, Rolf  and Anders are putting together what they think will be the best Radiodays Europe programme ever.
-The expectations are extremely high. Participants want new, on-the-edge speakers and a great variety in topics to be covered. I think we can meet those expectations well, says Anders Held, one of the Project Managers.




The first programme will be announced later in December. Some of the speakers already confirmed include Robert Krulwich from the ground breaking American radio show “Radio Lab”. He will talk about how Robert and Jad Abumrad get their ideas and how they can be so creative in the way they tell their stories. Radio Lab is extremely successful also as podcast.



Valerie Weber, PD of Antenne Bayern, one of Germany´s largest private radio stations, will also talk about storytelling on air.




And Alison Norrington, British author, will focus on trans media storytelling.





Arno Müller, award winning morning host of 104,6 RTL Berlin, is one of the most wellknown radio stars in Germany. He will share his views on how to make a great morning show.




Craig Bruce, Head of Content at Southern Cross Austereo in Australia will be sharing his experience in recruiting and coaching talent – “The Talent Pipeline”. In another session Sam Cavanagh, also from Australia, will tell the story about the successful show “Hamish and Andy”.







From the public broadcaster in Germany we will hear keynotes from Joachim Knuth, Director of NDR, Hamburg and Dagmar Reim, DG of RBB, Berlin.





Other sessions will look into what´s new on digital, social media, hybrid radio and radio on smartphones; new research about audience behaviour and how to use social media to catch the authentic voice of your listeners; a music industry keynote on the changing relationship with radio as well as some leading music directors on how they find new music; creativity in advertisement and new revenue possibilities. Among other topics, in all 50 sessions.
