The highly anticipated "United Nations of Radio"  is set to take place April 27 – 28, 2012 in Los Angeles, CA at the W Hotel in Hollywood. The event will lead up to the highly respected independent global music, media and technology conference MUSEXPO, which celebrates its eighth year in 2012 and has been hosted on three continents (N. America, Europe and Australasia).

The Worldwide Radio Summit's inaugural debut this year generated significant outcomes for many of the hundreds of US and international attendees that participated this year who have a vested interest in the world's most powerful medium to break new artists, sell music and engage with billions of listeners globally.

The 2012 event will highlight some of the most important issues and opportunities impacting radio today and tomorrow, as well as focus on the future of this crucial broadcast medium that is the world's largest communicator of music and sound. Among the topics being addressed are new ways to reach consumers, radio's influence across multiple platforms, new business models, social media, new technology, streaming advances, radio device development and creative programming.

The Worldwide Radio Summit's debut event attracted 100's of broadcaster and music executives including CBS, Citadel, Clear Channel, Cox, Cumulus, Emmis, Entercom, Pandora, Sony Music (Columbia, Epic, Jive, RCA), UMG (Interscope, IDJMG, Universal/Republic), WMG (Warner/Reprise), Absolute Radio International (UK, Australia), MotorFM (Germany), P4 (Norway), XMSirius, SoundCloud, Westwood One, Premiere Radio Networks, Y Music, BBC Radio (UK), Triple J Radio (Australia), Last.FM, Triton Media, Arbitron, ESPN Radio, Yahoo!, MTV/VH1 Radio, PBS, and hundreds of others.

The architects behind the Worldwide Radio Summit include the influential independent international talent discovery, development and consulting firm A&R Worldwide, which produces the annual MUSEXPO and consults numerous music industry events around the globe; and the world's largest online radio/music industry information and news resource, AllAccess.com.

After strong encouragement from international radio broadcasters and the music community over the past few years, the idea of a Worldwide Radio Summit came into fruition last year-- to unite broadcasters from the US and other nations in an inclusive manner to showcase new creative and business models that will help this essential communicator of music, talk, news and sports evolve and thrive for years to come. In addition, it will help radio networks connect with its peers and help radio discover and expose some of the best new talent from across the globe to its vast audiences.

As radio evolves from terrestrial to online, satellite, digital to mobile, the Worldwide Radio Summit will continue to offer the insight that will keep attendees on the pulse of the future of this essential broadcast medium and provide the chance to interact with those driving the future ideology and content of radio.

Sat Bisla, President/Founder A&R Worldwide/MUSEXPO, states, "As a member and advocate of the global radio and music community I felt it was essential to bring together a melting pot of positive creative and business inspiration in a forum that would be productive and meaningful to those who participate at the inaugural Worldwide Radio Summit. Having been a part of the radio family for the past 26 years, sharing new sounds with music fans around the globe--radio has played a vital role in sharing great talent with the masses.

"The Worldwide Radio Summit will once again be a key forum to bring together radio and those vested in radio in a way to ensure this medium maintains its importance as the primary communicator for sound to billions around the world. I am very pleased [again] to be working with Joel Denver and his great team at AllAccess.com, who possess a similar passion and vision for radio as A&R Worldwide does: to help deliver an event that will bring broadcasters and music enthusiasts together for the betterment of radio, the listener and the music community."

Joel Denver, AllAccess.com President & Publisher, notes, "Everyone at AllAccess.com was so encouraged by the debut success of The Worldwide Radio Summit this year, and are very excited   to be co-presenting The Worldwide Radio Summit 2012 with our friend Sat Bisla and his amazing team at A&R Worldwide. We feel that The Worldwide Radio Summit 2012 will continue be a vital new opportunity for communication between radio managers and programmers from the United States and international markets, all with the same common goal--to make radio better and integrate creative programming across a growing number of digital platforms.

"We share a common belief that radio will continue to grow and prosper utilizing and branding with new technologies to find innovative ways to reach consumers. In the coming years, it will be even more apparent that radio is no longer shackled by the limitations of its tower-based signal, but has an infinite opportunity to truly be everywhere via streaming, apps and future technologies by building exciting brands, not just offering cookie-cutter programming.

"At The Worldwide Radio Summit, we'll once again present exciting speakers who will share their knowledge of radio, digital technologies and successful methods of ways of driving new revenue streams so that radio executives around the world can tap into these rapidly evolving new frontiers of interaction and communication with their audiences. This will not be the same old stuff you've seen elsewhere.  This will be another example of must-see, must-hear, must-attend content."

The Worldwide Radio Summit will take place at the W Hotel in Hollywood April 27 – 28, 2012. For up-to-date event details, registration information and more, visit www.worldwideradiosummit.com.

What are broadcasters who attended the Worldwide Radio Summit saying about radio?

"In the USA alone, radio reaches over 293 million listeners every week! That's 93% of all consumers in the country! It's our job to entertain, inform, and help in the discovery of new music every time they turn the radio on--what an exciting and rewarding way to have a positive and lasting impact on our audiences!" -- Jimmy Steal, VP Programming Emmis & Program Director Power 106 Los Angeles.

"Radio is still, by far, the most effective and emotive way of communicating passion for music." -- Mike Walsh, Head of Music, Xfm (UK).

"Radio as a medium cannot be buried or ignored; it continues to influence all other mediums and reflect societies' cultural state. Video did not kill the radio star, neither did podcasts or mp3s, not even streaming or 'listen again' options have destroyed the 'LIVE' power of radio. Presenters, programmers and producers in radio are some of the most 'aware' people in the world. They must be in touch with the heartbeat of society, find the language and the songs that touch and connect with everyday people. The Worldwide Radio Summit is essential to remind both individuals and corporate monsters that the human voice is the most powerful medium and without listeners we don't have anyone to talk to." -- Andrew Phillips, Program Director, Geraldton (Australian Broadcasting Corp.)
