Chris Johnson - AMRAP

Chris Johnson has been a radio and new-media executive for over a decade. Chris was the founding manager of nationally award-winning station Edge Radio in Tasmania. Chris now manages the Australian Music Radio Airplay Project (Amrap) and online innovation at the Community Broadcasting Association of Australian (CBAA). Amrap was funded by the Australian Government to distribute new Australian music to community radio and to empower broadcasters to promote musicians on air and online. Chris created ‘Amrap’s AirIt’ and ‘Amrap Pages’ to meet the challenge and since 2010  over 3,000 broadcasters from 300 stations have used Amrap to order over 250,000 new Australian music tracks for airplay and to promote thousands of Australian musicians through web, mobile and social media platforms.
