This month we'll meet at Thomson Media for a session on audio & tech including insights from German and Ukrainian professionals.

Please do join us in this mild November weather! There will be some nibbles to keep us warm.

Hacks/Hackers is a space to talk about the intersection between technology and journalism. Come and join us!


Christian Schalt – On the Future of Radio

Christian, who is based in Berlin and worked for many major radio stations in Germany and Austria, both as program director and as a general manager. In 2014 he spent several months in Silicon Valley studying how technology is changing the audio and music landscape. Since then he's been working as a consultant helping radio stations master the digital transformation and tech companies entering the audio space.
Very timely, marking the 100th anniversary of the medium radio, his talk will provide an overview of the latest developments coming out of this sector as well as his thoughts on the future of radio.
