Producers & presenters

Simon Smith invites three guests to talk about the intriguing relationship between producers and presenters of radio shows.

Up for discussion are the differences between the two roles and the effect that the producer/presenter relationship has on the feel of the show.

What can producers do to encourage great performances from presenters? How do you strike up and maintain a good working relationship that works for your radio programme?

"You don't have to be best friends, but you certainly have to get on." – Emlyn Dodd

Joining Simon are Phil Critchlow, founder of TBI Media and vice chair of The Radio Independents Group, Radio 2 presenter Richard Allinson and Emlyn Dodd, producer of Scott Mills' show on Radio 1.
