Tokyo FM’s Blue Ocean & BBC Global News Podcast: #RDA22

Two shows, two sessions, two stories at Radiodays Asia, Tokyo FM’s Blue Ocean & BBC Global News Podcast 

Hear from two very different stories from a station and a podcast at Radiodays Asia 2022, and both have a happy ending.

Radiodays Asia will be held from 6-7 September 2022, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and will aim to cover all the headline topics in the Radio, Audio & Podcast Industries.

What Goes Into The Blue Ocean?

Tokyo FM’s mid-morning show Blue Ocean has been hosted for the last 10 years by one of Japan’s top broadcasters, Miki Sumiyoshi.

But what goes into a top-rating show like this? What makes it a success? What’s the secret sauce?

Miki-san will be live at Radiodays Asia to reveal all in a one on one fireside chat with James Ross.

Plus Miki will be broadcasting Blue Ocean live from KL.
