Brian Nankervis - Keynote Speaker at CBAA Conference

And our keynote speaker is...

Helen Henry, 7th July 2016

Without further ado, the CBAA is excited to announce that RocKwiz producer and co-host Brian Nankervis will be joining us at our Conference in Melbourne to deliver the keynote address.

Nankervis fell in love with radio as a young lad, listening in front of the kerosene heater on a rainy day. He began presenting shows on Melbourne's Triple R in 1979 and currently co hosts The Friday Revue on 774 ABC.

Brian will celebrate his deep love affair with radio, particularly the joy and power of community radio.

Brian joins a growing line up of fantastic speakers coming to share their expertise at the largest annual gathering of community broadcasters - the CBAA Conference
