Philippe Chapot and Brulhatour, who run the European Radio and Digital Audio Show said: “In 2020, in France and Europe, radio remains a safe bet and the soundest listening tool. Europeans love radio and have faith in it. It is still deeply rooted in the lives of listeners. But at the beginning of the 21st century, audio is becoming more versatile and is spreading at an ever-faster pace in all the interstices of life and through all types of media. Digital Audio is now available everywhere, anytime. It is definitely a new revolution and a new field of possibilities.”
