Jonathan Holmes, the former host of the ABC’s Media Watch, will chair a session at the National Radio Conference in Brisbane next month on how to avoid being featured on the popular program.
Holmes, now a columnist with Fairfax, will chair the session entitled ‘Avoiding Media Watch’, which will feature a panel of high-profile broadcast media lawyers: Michelle Davies (Fairfax), Sarah Tinsley (DMG) and Stuart Thomas (Network Ten, formerly Macquarie Radio Network).
Holmes will guide a discussion into how the radio industry can steer clear of pitfalls that affect broadcast media.
The senior legal experts will answer questions posed by Holmes, and offer views to delegates on how to steer clear of becoming the centre of a media storm or minimizing the impact.
Commercial Radio Australia chief executive officer, Joan Warner, said: “Sessions like this one are an excellent forum for discussion and debate amongst our members and we look forward to what Jonathan Holmes and the panel will bring to the conference.”
Previously announced conference speakers include online video sensation Natalie Tran, Today Network Drive host Jules Lund, Naked Communications' Adam Ferrier, the man behind Hamish & Andy, Sam Cavanagh, 2014 radio ratings provider, GfK, plus leading US radio sales industry trainer, Pat Bryson.
The National Radio Conference will be staged this year in Brisbane, the day before the 25th annual Australian Commercial Radio Awards.
