Daniel Nathan is a radio entrepreneur, producer and pioneer of new radio formats and platforms, with more than thirty years' industry experience.


Involvement in pirate radio in the early 1980s led him to co-found the UK's first 'alternative' format station, Festival Radio, with trial Home Office licences in London and Brighton. Spin-off Festival Productions made award-winning syndicated new music radio, advertising campaigns, drama and documentary series for BBC and UK commercial radio. A launch consultant for Kiss 100 in London, Daniel was subsequently co-founder of Kiss 102 in Manchester and Kiss 105 in Yorkshire. He is Chairman of Juice 107.2 in Brighton, which he launched in 1998. In 2000, he created totallyradio.com, a groundbreaking, on-demand internet radio playing music beyond the mainstream. Daniel was a key contributor to the launch of the UK Radioplayer in 2011 and is a member of the UK Radioplayer Technical Steering Group. He was Project Manager of three R&D projects funded by the Technology Strategy Board that represented unprecedented collaborations across the radio industry value chain, bringing together content producers, aggregators, radio hardware manufacturers, online radio and broadcast radio.
  Grant Goddard is the UK's leading media analyst of the radio broadcasting industry, having published more than 1,000 articles, analyst reports and presentations about the sector.

He has worked for three decades in the radio industry, having created successful large-scale commercial radio stations in the UK, Europe and Asia for clients such as News Corporation's Star TV and US-based Metromedia International Inc. Grant's contributions to the UK media sector include investment advice to City shareholders as Senior Media Analyst with Enders Analysis, the research and drafting of a report for the government's Digital Britain consultation on the future regulation of commercial radio, and a report on the BBC's use of independent radio productions commissioned by the BBC Trust. He was called to provide written and oral evidence to the Competition Commission and the House of Lords Select Committee on Communications concerning radio sector issues. His career started in pirate radio in the 1970s, which led to him successfully transforming Kiss FM from an unlicensed London broadcaster into the UK's first legal youth-targeted, black music radio station.
