The ITU Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific says costs, enormity of task, lack of government support and cooperation among stakeholders, and ever evolving technologies remain as some of the challenges in the migration from analogue to digital in the region.

“Not only does the setup of infrastructure for digital but also carrying out a simulcast service for a given period involve a lot of money and resources. On top of these the need to subsidise set- top-boxes to masses is an additional burden,” said Mr Wisit Atipayakoon, Programme Officer of the ITU Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, Bangkok before participants at the AIBD/ITU/ABU regional workshop on “Digital Terrestrial Broadcasting TV and Radio Policy and Transition,” on 5 June 2017 in Qingdao, China.

A winning strategy for radio stations must consider the listener, brand. Content and promotion.

They must learn to understand and love their listeners who, after all, decide the shape of their brand. “ Everything a radio station does in the air must be entertaining, useful, interesting to their listeners, and connecting to their heart, head and hand,” says Francis Currie, international radio consultant, trainer and coach, UK.

Mr Currie spoke at the AIBD/Radiodays Europe/RCS Presummit workshop on “A Sound Future-Creating Engaging Content on all Platforms, held on 5 June 2017 in Qingdao, China. Some 31 participants from 16 countries in Asia-Pacific and Africa attended the workshop.

A new approach to deal with sensationalism and negativism in news that are increasingly turning off audiences and pushing them to trust media less and care less about the world is the application of constructive journalism.

Constructive journalism can “ empower audiences to have an accurate view of the world and also learn about solutions, not just problems, what’s working and not just what’s not working” Mr Mark Egan, a mobile video specialist and faculty member of  EuroVision Academy, said,
