radioinfo is offering readers a daily radio industry “news flash briefing” podcast.
You can see it at the top right of our desktop site and at the bottom of our mobile site. To subscribe, click the subscribe button in the player and choose your preferred podcast platform.
Beginning this Tuesday 11th February, we will upload a short audio bulletin covering the day’s industry news from our radioinfo and AsiaRadioToday trade publications. Brad Smart will compile and host the report, using material from our team of reporters and contributors.
The bulletin will be available each weekday morning on all podcast platforms, and also as a daily flash briefing for smart speakers.
Publisher Steve Ahern says: “We’ve been toying with this idea for some time. Now the stars have aligned to allow us to launch it for 2020. Our recent readership survey showed that our readers are ready for a podcast that they can consume anywhere on any platform.
“We work in an audio medium so it is only logical for us to be expanding in this area and making it available as a flash briefing.”
Editor Peter Saxon is looking forward to contributing to the bulletin. “It’s been a while since I’ve had a regular on air role, I will have to start doing voice exercises again! Here’s a quick warm-up exercise: I’m not a pheasant plucker, I’m a pheasant plucker’s son. I’m only plucking pheasants till the pheasant plucker comes.”
Presenter Brad Smart says: “I’ve been a contributor to radioinfo for several years now and I know how much readers value the quality of the site’s content. I’m looking forward to being part of the team helping grow radioinfo through this innovation.”
Jordon Lott from Acast says: “We are very excited to be working with Radioinfo as their hosting, distribution and monetization podcast partner. Radioinfo have been an ally to the Australian podcast industry, so it seems only natural that this podcast would take shape. We’re excited to support the launch and growth of this series to return the favour.”
