Conference gives insight into world of community radio

BWBF attended a conference at the weekend to learn more about community radio stations and how we could work with them.

A conference held by the Community Media Association has given BWBF an insight into the world of community radio.

Agent Liaison Manager Dave Beard went along to the organisation’s annual Community Media Conference on behalf of the charity on Saturday (September 10th).

It took place in Birmingham and was a chance for interested parties to get news and updates from within the industry.

It also gave an insight into the world of community radio stations and how they are growing fast – with 244 already on air and another 36 waiting to go live shortly.

Mr Beard said: “It was a great networking event and many good contacts were made, as well as gaining a clear idea about how we could work with community radio stations to reach out to potential recipients.

“A great relationship has been born from our attendance at this event – one which will only continue to flourish I’m sure.”
