Past Tuning In guests have included Roman Kemp and Ronan Keating, Vicki Maguire and Martin Glenn, along with music stars Howard Donald and Professor Green.

Radiocentre’s Client Director, Lucy Barrett said: “Who would have thought this time last year that virtual events would play such a big role in our lives. We’re very proud to have put on so many successful Tuning livestreams over the past year, helping thousands of advertisers ‘see radio differently’.

“I’m looking forward to presenting our interesting new research findings at March’s event, and can’t wait for people to hear from our best line up to date.”
