Mark Thompson, Director General of the BBC, has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at this year’s Radio Festival.

The Director General’s speech is likely to cover hot topics currently simmering in the industry such as the implications for programmes of the BBC’s 2010 license settlement, the next Communications Act and the Delivering Quality First (DQF) programme.

Thompson joins a fantastic line-up for this year’s Radio Festival, with names already announced including hosts Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie, Dragon’s Den star Duncan Bannatyne and music broadcasting legend ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris.

John Myers, Chief Executive of The Radio Academy, said: “This year’s Festival promises to be the place to debate the important issues facing our industry and hear from the top people who will set the tone and policies influencing programme makers.

The Director General of the BBC is the most important person in UK broadcasting and I am looking forward to hearing what he has to say about the future landscape of the sector.
