The Evolution of Radio

Topical programme about the fast-changing media world. Digital radio is now more popular than FM - and Amazon and Spotify have it in their sights.

Digital radio has become more popular than listening over FM and AM in the UK for the first time. Meanwhile, technology companies like Amazon and Spotify are increasing their investment in original podcasts and music programming. What does the drift to digital mean for traditional radio broadcasters? Also, as the Grenfell Tower inquiry begins taking public evidence, did the tragedy also represent a failure of journalism?

Amol Rajan is joined by Paul Keenan, CEO Bauer Media UK and European Radio, Maeve McClenaghan, host of The Tip Off podcast, Emma Maier, editor Inside Housing, and Aliya Ram, FT European Technology correspondent.

Presenter: Amol Rajan
Producer: Richard Hooper.
