Global’s news team join the Tuning In Scotland event line-up

Global’s Political Editor for Scotland Gina Davidson and Regional News Editor Corrie Martin are set to appear at Radiocentre’s Tuning In event in Scotland.

They’ll be talking about the issues surrounding Scottish politics, including independence, gender reform and the race to find a new SNP leader stacking up and dominating the headlines.

Gina and Corrie will discuss the importance of having a national voice and how Scottish radio is driving the UK news agenda, during the discussion at the Everyman Edinburgh on 16th March.

Also joining the agenda are Forth 1’s Breakfast Presenters, Boogie and Arlene, Bauer’s Content Director for Scotland, Victoria Easton-Riley, and Head of Content for Greatest Hits Radio in Scotland, Michael Macrae.

Victoria and the team will talk about Bauer’s Scottish transformation with Greatest Hits Radio and how the station will be shortly welcoming broadcasting legend Ken Bruce to the network.

Tuning In Scotland comes at a time when commercial radio is booming, with both record audiences and revenues. If you’re based in Scotland and want to explore how the industry is rapidly evolving, there are a limited number of tickets still available for this free event, so sign up for your place here.
