Every year February 13 is celebrated as World Radio Day. UNESCO has invited radio producers and broadcasters to celebrate the World Radio Day 2015 around the theme “Youth and Radio”
Mr. Turan Ali, Director of Radio Netherlands Training Centre, Netherlands, has identified various elements in producing programmes that have an impact consistently with audiences.
How to integrate value added services with creative content that’s available on air is a key factor in drawing investors to allocate more resources to create good programmes.
Broadcasters from 19 countries in Asia-Pacific, Europe, and Africa generated a list of storytelling techniques and creative formats critical in dealing with shifting consumer behaviours in today’s multimedia world.
Ms. Poonam Sharma, Director of Singapore MediaGuru, urged broadcasters to relearn the art of good storytelling, and stressed that winning in today’s multimedia landscape means not only creating a story that is relevant and interactive, and one that provokes and engages audiences, but also delivering or executing it creatively.
As media becomes more complex, broadcasters need to understand that individuals and communities are increasingly using various media simultaneously and interacting, and such multitasking has had an impact on how they engage with individual task or activity.
The future of broadcasting lies not only in producing creative content that is relevant, innovative, and engaging, but also in adopting formats that keep pace with the demands of various platforms and shifting audience preferences.
Dato’ Jailani Johari, Honourable Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia, has urged broadcasters to be open and present non traditional approaches based on best experiences of their home regions in providing training to meet the demand for creative content.
More than sixty trainers, practitioners and managers of broadcast organisations from Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa are expected to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Broadcast Training in Kuala Lumpur from 5 - 6 February 2015.
YB Datuk Jailani Johari, Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia, Malaysia, has called on broadcasters in Asia-Pacific to offer new channels generated by the advent of digital terrestrial TV broadcasting with programmes that cater to the different needs of their audience who want variety.
