Among the recurring themes out of the many discussions that took place – both on stage and off – at the inaugural Radiodays North America event during Canadian Music Week in Toronto, were the need to attract younger audiences, shifting consumer listening habits, including the ongoing battle for in-car, audience measurement challenges, and of course the artificial intelligence vs. authenticity debate.
