On the heels of the debate over diversity in Hollywood, Ryerson University is going examine the situation in radio. From the press release:
It’s said that diversity is good for business. Is the radio industry listening? In the multicultural City of Toronto, are our public airwaves reflecting the diversity of our population?
Our panel of experts are seasoned radio professionals and researchers with a focus on diversity, who will take a look at diversity in radio through the lens of accessibility, representation, and commercial opportunity.
