Where’s Radio Going Next? London.

nextradioSo, I’m headed to London, England in September for the Next Radio conference. Why? Because I’m really interested in what’s happening to radio around the world, I want to meet new people, hear voices and messages that are different than what I’ve been hearing, and just as social media has helped to make the world a smaller, more intimate space – I believe radio can do the same.

I’m not going there instead of (enter your favorite U.S. radio conference), I’m going there for different perspective, different experiences, and to force myself out of my comfort zone. Lucky for me, it’s also a country that enjoys a good pint, so I should be able to make friends. If you’re planning to be there drop me a line.
