UK News: BBC Radio Bosses To Be Grilled At Networking Night


BBC’s director of music, Bob Shennan

Music Week reports that BBC Radio executives in charge of BBC 1xtra, Radio 1 and 6Music will be quizzed by the publication on October 30 at a special networking event in London.

They will be asked about the future strategy of the BBC’s stations, their public responsibilities, budget cuts at the Beeb and their respective views on how the modern music industry is evolving.

Shennan will also be quizzed on his task of ‘joining up’ BBC channels across radio, TV and online when it comes to music – as well as the progress of the first ever BBC Music Awards, which take place on December 11 at London’s Earls Court. 

The Evening Sessions event, sponsored by UK Music, will take place at Soho venue The Ham Yard Hotel. Food and drinks will be laid on for delegates, with plenty of opportunity to network before and after the Q&A.

Attendees will also have the chance to ask live questions of the panelists.

“These are exciting times for Music at the BBC,” said Shennan. “Ben and I are working closely together with colleagues in TV and Online to make sure it becomes a key pillar of BBC output. We are looking forward to sharing more at the Music Week event.”?

“These are exciting times for Music at the BBC,” said Shennan.

Hahahaha- exciting times for who Bob???

£45 .00 (Early Bird price) to sit, listen and then “mingle” with  BBC executives? 

Nah I don’t think so Music Week.  

The BBC gets enough money out of me each year. £145.50 to be exact.

This should be a free event.
