Michael Curling

Audio and video producer
Michael Curling has lived and breathed radio for most of his life. At the age of 10 he built a radio studio in his bedroom and broadcast on a loudspeaker to his long-suffering family. By the age of 17 he was working for BBC radio where he quickly discovered a joy for breaking with the established technical and editorial norms, designing and implementing studio tools that are still in use today in the BBC. In the early nineties he was dragged kicking and screaming in to a bi-media age where he discovered the joy of creating content for both TV and radio. His freelance career, which now spans well over 10 years, has taken him around the world with athletics, horse racing and skiing and he enjoyed his own home-coming at London 2012. Michael has won awards for his sound design and radio production in a world shared equally between sport and music radio. Michael has a burning desire to create rich content for online, radio and TV audiences. His latest exploits have seen the birth of EBU’s Storyboard tool - first developed when he was part of an award-winning team at a hackathon in Stockholm.
