The event will be introduced by Radiocentre’s CEO Siobhan Kenny, who will provide an overview of the radio sector and how it has supported audiences and advertisers during the past year. There will also be new Radiocentre research launched by Client Director Lucy Barrett and Insight Manager Kamilah Kamara, looking at the pandemics impact on radio listening.

Radiocentre’s Client Director, Lucy Barrett said: “Who would have thought this time last year that virtual events would play such a big role in our lives. We’re very proud to have put on so many successful Tuning livestreams over the past year, helping thousands of advertisers ‘see radio differently’.
