Commercial Radio Good News Stories to be Aired at Conference
This year’s Churches’ Media Conference will reveal how creative religious programmes are still finding a place on commercial radio.
At a time when the industry is becoming more national and less local, and when religion seems to play a less significant part in people’s lives, Christian producers are still finding their material has a place in the fast moving, celebrity-driven world of commercial radio. Several producers, including the Bradford-based Whistling Frog Productions, will showcase their work at a special “stream” during the conference.
In the past year, consolidation in the industry has led to redundancies, and those offering Christian programmes have not been immune. The commercial radio “stream” at the conference will also look at new ways to bring Christian content to sceptical radio management.
The annual Churches Media Conference attracts a wide range of media specialists from the BBC and independent channels, as well as community and hospital radio, and the written press. This year’s theme is “Impact”, and will ask, “What impact does the media have on society? What impact people of faith can have on the media?” Main speakers include Edward Stourton from BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme, and video games guru Paul Jackson.
The conference runs from 8 – 10 June 2009, at the Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire.
