Welcome to Lausanne and the 10th Radiodays Europe! What are the big themes for radio and audio this year? How is our industry changing?  What are the new challenges and the latest innovations in radio and audio in 2019? A fast paced first session, with a number of shorter keynotes, interviews and surprises! Radio industry keynote: Radio and audio - Where we are and where we are going In his keynote address, Paul Keenan will assess the current state of the radio and audio industry across Europe from his unique position as the CEO of one of Europe’s largest broadcasting businesses, Bauer Media. He will look at where future growth lies, the role of consolidation in the sector, and how Bauer continues to innovate with new and distinctive digital services. Paul Keenan (CEO of Bauer Media UK and European Radio, UK) Welcome addresses: Mounir Krichane (Director of the Initiative for Media Innovation, EPFL University, Switzerland) Anders Held (General Manager, Radiodays Europe, Sweden) Peter Niegel (General Manager, Radiodays Europe, Denmark) Thematic keynotes: One year after No Billag Last year Switzerland got very excited and torn apart over “No Billag”. It quite simply implied a total ban on all funding for the Swiss public broadcaster. The public service won the referendum and the battle, but this victory results in major upheavals. Gilles Marchand will tell the lessons learned. Gilles Marchand (Director General of SRG SSR, Switzerland) Declining trust in media – What can we do? As overall ‘trust in media’ continues to decline, what are the trends in Europe telling us? Are there positive narratives for public service media, particularly radio?  How can we ensure it continues to provide an independent, reliable voice to the next generation? Noel Curran (Director General, EBU, Ireland)  Brexitcast - BBC Radio 5 Live “Brexitcast” has become essential listening for those wanting to understand every twist and turn in the Brexit story. Produced by BBC Radio 5 Live, this highly popular podcast brings together the BBC’s Political Editor, Europe Editor, Brussels Reporter and BBC's Political Correspondent to share their opinions on the very latest developments.
