On Monday 25th February, the Yorkshire Branch of The Radio Academy will be hosting an event with the BBC’s Rod McKenzie.
Rod will deliver a keynote speech entitled “And finally … the end of radio news – the fight for young audiences in a multi-screen world.”
The session will explore how radio news can compete in a digital age when audiences can access news and information on a wide range of web-linked devices – particularly those we carry in our pockets.
Rod McKenzie is the Editor of BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat and 1Xtra News, reaching out to an estimated audience of ten and a half million listeners. He is responsible for the expansion of specialist journalism in fields such as entertainment news and youth health, driving an agenda that’s very different from that of the mainstream BBC News.
The event is presented by The Radio Academy’s Yorkshire Branch, in association with the Leeds Trinity University Journalism Week.
Journalism Week is a major event on Leeds Trinity University’s calendar, giving students interested in a career in journalism the opportunity to listen to, work with, network and learn from a wide range of professionals. Rod will be part of a line-up that includes names like Mark Austin (ITN), Jeff Stelling (Sky Sports), Neil Wallis (former Editor of the Sunday People), Stuart Rowson (Editor of the BBC Sports Website) and many others.
Date: Monday 25th February
Venue: Mary Hallaway Lecture Theatre, Leeds Trinity University, Brownberrie Lane, Horsforth, Leeds, LS18 5HD
