The Future of Radio in Canada - A Digital Revolution?

Radio consumption is changing. Is the future live and local - or is it more complicated than that? How will tomorrow's listeners be listening - and what should Canadian radio be doing to meet them? From smart speakers to smart phones and smart radio receivers - what is Canadian radio's digital strategy? Should radio adapt slowly to the new world, or should we have a revolution? In this provocative talk, radio futurologist James Cridland looks at international radio trends and asks whether we're doing all we can to prepare for the changes ahead.
