Rhian Roberts

I am the Head of Digital Content Commissioning for BBC Radio 4, 4 Extra and Radio 3 and based in London. I’ve worked in TV, Radio and am now devoted to all the new platforms that let us experiment even more with how we share facts and tell stories. We’re in the middle of an audio renaissance and it’s wonderful to see young audiences discovering it for the first time, and many of them via the new BBC Sounds ap. I’ve been lucky enough to work at many BBC radio stations, and across a range of genre. I spent a lot of time in news and current affairs as a journalist and programme editor but I’ve also made shows with full orchestras, comedians and animals. Now I’m commissioning and developing lots of different BBC podcasts and experimenting with formats and new approaches to sound.
