The highly-regarded Jacobs Media blog has highlighted the work of the UK Radioplayer in their regular "Radio's Most Innovative" slot.

Michael Hill, Managing Director of UK Radioplayer, is quoted as saying:

‘Radioplayer’ is a concept that’s much bigger than the app. It’s about working together, to secure radio’s future. About four years ago, online listening appeared to be flat-lining, compared to the growth of video, social media, and other content. So the UK radio industry decided to collaborate on some strategically important stuff. That is, to ‘agree on technology, compete on content.’

The article also contains a highlight about getting the in-car experience right; and advice for others with innovative ideas.

Michael is just one of over twenty speakers at Next Radio, the radio ideas conference on Monday 8 September.
