New York Festivals® announced the appointment of Dylan Haskins Commissioning Executive for Podcasts for BBC Sounds & BBC Radio 5 Live to the NYF Radio Awards Advisory Board

“It’s a great honour to be asked to join the Advisory Board of the New York Festivals Radio Awards and to have the opportunity to help shape and advise the awards during such an exciting period of evolution in audio creativity, innovation, investment and audience habits. As a commissioner for a public service broadcaster, it’s also a time of challenge and competition from new commercial players but, in my experience, this is leading us all to be more ambitious, to go bigger on what makes us distinctive and to experiment and collaborate more where there are shared aims. All of this means radio and podcasts have never been better and a competition like the New York Festivals helps recognise this.”—Dylan Haskins, Commissioning Executive for Podcasts, BBC Sounds & BBC Radio 5 Live
