Eurovision operated by ebu
WEDNESDAY 8 FEBRUARY | EBU, GENEVA
Part of Digital Radio Week 2017


"Alexa, what's on the radio?"
What's on the radio? What's going on with radio? What is radio these days?

The way we think and talk about radio is changing. Listening to great speech and music content is as popular as ever, but the ways of doing so are multiplying, with new technologies, platforms and services.

The Digital Radio Summit, at the heart of the EBU's Digital Radio Week, will look at the latest developments around Europe and beyond, the case for embracing Hybrid Radio, the twin challenges of receiver compliance and in-car access, and the prospects for Digital Radio in mobiles.
