The Top 10 New Talent to Watch in 2013


We are now into the 2013 radio ratings year. New shows have been launched around the country – so I thought I’d do a lap of the map and highlight some of the rising stars.

The Top 10 New Talent to Watch includes metro and regional radio and is made up of talent who have been emerging over the past couple of years.

Entertaining, unique, compelling talent will determine the relevance of radio in the future – and, as mentioned in The future of radio. Is your job safe and will radio survive ? here, the great talent now and in the future will be strong exponents of their own social media platforms – so I’ve included twitter, Facebook and/or website details so you can follow them.

These people have the talent – and the opportunity – to do great things this year. 2013 could be “the year that makes their career”!

Here are the Top 10 (in no particular order)…..
