New Radio Day on 'Personalized Radio'

New Radio Day will focus on one of this year's industry hot topics – the fastest growing trends in the media environment. 'Personalized radio' is much more than merely listening on demand. It's an advanced mixture of linear (traditional FM, DAB+, live streaming via the Net) and non-linear (podcasting) content to serve individual preferences.

The current question is how can radio broadcasters sharpen their profiles to attract target groups in an increasingly fragmented digitally-driven media world? Organizations are seeking to engage with their audiences more actively through personal programme selection. Find out more about the technological and content solutions available. This strategic conference hosted by Latvian Radio in Riga will enable EBU Members to discuss the latest developments, share best practices and learn about new trends, platforms and technologies.
