Wanna 'Ask the Experts'?

Radio Today's 'Ask the Experts' is where we pose your questions to a revolving group of industry experts. As always, if there's a question you want to ask (and you can remain anonymous if you like), shoot it through to us here.

This weeks experts are Craig Bruce from SCA, Duncan Campbell from ARN, Irene Hulme from DMG and David Kidd from MRN.

To this week's question;

'I am an announcer in a mid-size, but un-rated, regional market. I desperately want to make it to metro, but all the big gigs seem to go to reality tv stars, or people who already have a profile in the capital cities.
