Lauri Kivinen, CEO of the Finnish public broadcasting company YLE, was a member of a panel on the future of radio at Slush Music.
Lauri believes that radio has a bright future, although there are many challenges. Some of them have to do with technology, given that there have never been more ways to reach consumers through all the different devices we carry with us every day. But the main challenge has to do with choice. There has never been so much variety and accessibility in entertainment. Radio needs to tackle this by reaffirming its relevance to the consumers because after all its about content.
