The International Radio Festival's B2B Forum takes place at the historic Mediterranean Conference Centre on 1st November, covering the hottest topics in the global audio and music industries. One of the dozen speakers during this jam-packed day is James Keen-Pan.

Since August of this year James Keen runs Channel 103 in Jersey and Island FM in Guernsey as their Station Director. Both stations belong to the Tindle Radio Group which owns commercial stations in the Channel Islands and in Ireland. The first station acquired by Tindle was 104.7 Island FM in 1998. The station remains the sole commercial station in Guernsey and continues to be extremely successful with high listenership figures. Both stations, Island FM and Channel 103 both started to broadcast in 1992.

As Station Director, James Keen will oversee both the commercial and content sides of the businesses. He leaves Global’s Heart Essex and East Anglia stations, where he was Managing Editor, to take up this new position. Previous to that he was with Q103 in Cambridge and the UKRD Group.

James told RadioToday in August: «I can’t wait to join two such fantastic stations on two stunning islands. It’s an exciting time to be joining and helping to drive new ideas to help build on the stations’ phenomenal success super-serving their audiences and customers over their first 25 years.»

At the IRF’s B2B Conference James will join Andrew Zammit from Malta’s «number one hit music station» 89.7 Bay on stage to discuss the benefits and challenges of targeting a small island-based audience.
