Why Game Changers: RADIO?
Game Changers: Radio features intimate conversations with those who have known success and failure in their radio careers. Our show is hosted by Craig Bruce and produced by Jay Mueller.
Season 1 and Season 2 aired in 2016 and received critical recognition when shortlisted in the Mumbrella Publish Awards for Best Podcast 2016. Based on this success, Craig Bruce delivered the keynote at Next Radio Conference in London in September 2016.
As a result, in late in Season 3 we ventured beyond our Australian shores to the United Kingdom. We spoke to the best of the best in radio in the UK.
Season 4 (once again focusing on Australian talent) launched in 2017. During the season, Craig gave a keynote about Game Changers: Radio at Radio Days Europe. We then released Game Changers: Rising Stars - a special season focusing on the emerging talent in Australian radio.
At the end of 2017 we moved away from the season approach and to fortnightly schedule.
The podcast is the end result of an idea formed after working for more than 20 years in Australian radio. Craig Bruce is the former national head of content for Southern Cross Austereo. During his career Craig did everything from push buttons behind a desk to managing and driving some of the biggest names in the industry. He also met Jay Mueller, Content Director at SEN and founder of Bad Producer Productions.
And the rest, as they say, is a work in progress.
