To save clogging up the chatbox, I thought it'd be a good idea to set up a thread for a bit of fun, brainstorm some ideas whether that be realistic predictions or wishful thinking. I'll post some of my own thoughts when I get chance.

It can be Radio 1, Radio 2.. any of the other BBC National or local Stations, commercial, community or wider radio industry.

I can't see any massive change at Radio 1 or 1xtra unless anyone walks. Major changes have happened on both stations in recent months so i think things will be relatively quiet. 

Radio 2 will mostly stay the same I reckon, apart from Jeremy Vine leaving later in the year, with the replacement broadcasting from Salford. We'll hear more from Vernon Kay and Edith Bowman as regular cover throughout the year, and Scott will continue to regularly cover Ken Bruce's show. 

I was going to say Bauer would announce a big change to their Hits Radio schedule, but that has been announced in recent days. I can see them finally rebranding the locally named stations (such as Free Radio) as 'Hits'. I can also see them moving local shows to drive, with Fleur East's Breakfast show going national.

With the big additions of Simon Mayo and Jackie Brambles... It wouldn't surprise me if a big (not necessarily a Celeb name) radio name to took over the breakfast slot.

Radio 1 if anyones likely to leave this year I think it’ll be Matt Edmondson or Annie Nightingale to retire - possibly Pete Tong.  I did think Adele but I reckon she’ll hang on another year as if she’s still having check ups less likely to want to start a new role

I see Pete Tong tho should have some rest sort of show on Radio 2 as feel Fridays could do without being exclusively 80s/90s. He could still somehow have bit more time left as he’s untouchable. 
 

Annie is an exception to any convention about any longevity at Radio 1 her career is lasted decades longer at Radio 1 than any one expected defying the odds think as long as she can speak and mentally able to do the job she could do it for the rest of her living days how long they maybe. She launched an initiative for new female and nonbinary dj talent on radio 1 so that shows he commitment to Continue. I don’t think she’d retire. Neither would Tony Blackburn for that matter.

Matt could see maybe one of the next ones to go next he’s one I could see doing stand in presenting on stations like Radio 2 or virgin Radio maybe he could be type that would do podcasts books develop tv shows as he has done list of stuff I think when leaves inf he could end up devoting time between family but taking on some presenting duties

@NathanS see the possibility of Fleur East’s Breakfast show going national and bit of a rebuff on Bauer’s national outreach. I could see them pushing more money into marketing and promotion of their stations with nation wide advertisements on billboard busses and television wonder if like Global and BBC will try to develop an app or marketing strategy that links its radio names and brands more closely feel the Global app has helped people to tune in to other stations they might not and developed sister stations like LBC News and Capital and Heart Dance. Think Bauer developed good sister stations like Kiss with Kisstory and Kiss Fresh and the Absolute’s so many. 

Think the stations over at the Bauer stations lack being able to find radio content that is tailored to them. 

I overall think even if the BBC Sounds apps dont have the visual streams and multi media content links other radio apps have the tailored recommend section that is personalised for individual listener and have different moods that can find or listening content from all BBC Radio outlets very cohesive. 

I think it will be time that Bauer could end up playing catch up and other media outlets in the news media sector have yet to tap. 

I could see Hits and should maybe get one or two big names from the radio industry and needs to be able to rival Radio 1, Capital and Heart better. 

Feel Greatest Hits Radio may end up trying to pouch one or two additional names that are popular ‘celeb radio stars’ maybe get some adult contemporary tracks on presenter and some recent tracks of listener favourites like Diana Ross, Elton John, Rod Stewart. 

Ideally i have Absolute Radio and Radio X develop some content that rivals specialist content of music on BBC surprised if Shaun Keaveny either returns to XFM rebranded as Radio X or Absolute having more new cutting edge experimental shows that play more nieche genres and break new artists is needed to keep competition exciting.

Wonder if could see more offerings in the talk radio sector a Bauer magazine type radio station or real podcast push if develop a cohesive ‘planet Radio’ app may be opportunity to offer a range of original podcasts relating to magazines they own and radio stations. 

Could we see another newspaper or media outlet join in the talk radio wave outlet that owns Telegraph and Spectator, The Guardian could join in. But wonder if it will be the case if could have credible talk radio offerings that do non music comedy and entertainment or having Scotland or Wales wide commercial independent national stations like LBC, LBC News and Times Radio.

I mean think only maybe new things may see launch for BBC Radio 1 just minor changes of new playlist shows and podcasts of the bits overnight. Radio Paul Gamboccini could leave.

But I see the case that more or less the departures will be at BBC from BBC News department
