Australian radio industry alive with good ideas #RadioAlive2017

Wednesday 11 October, 2017

The Australian radio industry is alive with good programming, sales and technology ideas.

Those ideas will be showcased, discussed and debated on Friday in Melbourne at this year's national conference, organised by CRA.

The range of speakers and topics, and the theme itself, shows how much the conference has expended to encompass a whole of industry view. Which is one of the things that has made Australian radio great.  There is strong competition at station and network levels, but there is collaboration on wide industry issues that matter.
