Blog: Auto industry consolidation - interview on the radio
Dave Leggett | 27 May 2015
Radio is a media medium that fascinates me. TV did not kill it. The Interweb, also, did not kill it. In fact, the Web and digital broadcasting has given radio a new lease of life. In the UK, radio stations have been reporting increasing audiences. And there are also emerging digital-only radio stations. There is one called 'Share Radio' that specialises in 'money' and financial stories that occasionally rings me up for interviews. They called me about Sergio Marchionne and the subject of industrial consolidation, so I gave some off the top of my head answers to some questions. I thought they would edit it down, but you can hear the whole slightly verbose thing if you want to.
