60 seconds with…Chris Baughen, Managing Editor, XFM

Chris-Baughen-copy1Chris Baughen, Managing Editor of XFM, talks to OMD UK ahead of his panel at Advertising Week Europe 2015.

A bit about me

I’ve been working in radio for over 15 years. My first role was writing ads and from there I moved into programming with spells at Kerrang! Radio and as Exec Producer for the Capital Breakfast show before returning to XFM

A bit about my job

As Managing Editor for XFM I’m responsible for everything that comes out of the speakers 

Who is your inspiration?

Marcus Russell (Noel Gallagher’s Manager) as his hunger to keep looking forwards and develop new bands is as strong now as it ever was. 

What are you most looking forward to discussing on the panel?

I‘m looking forward to hearing more about how advertisers tackle the challenge of getting bands in our world to work with them when they are so protective of their own music brand.

Join Chris at Advertising Week Europe 2015 on Thursday 26th March (11:30, YouTube Stage) where he will participate on OMD UK’s panel – Music culture: How changes in the music industry are transforming popular culture – alongside Dan Clays, OMD UK’s Managing Director, Kanya King MBE, Founder of the MOBO Awards, Candice Morrisey, Music Strategic Partnerships EMEA, Google and Alice Levine, a leading Radio 1 DJ.
