Dom Nero confirmed for The Imaging Days 2015
He’s been holding down the imaging gig at Hot 97 in New York City for the last 10 years and now he has been confirmed for The Imaging Days 2015: Dom Nero!
Although having been at Hot 97 in New York for over 10 years, Dom is originally from Toronto, Canada. Like most who have worked in radio, Dom caught the bug at an early age. His love for music put him on the path to being a nightclub DJ when he was 15. This was right around the same time he noticed he enjoyed listening to a radio station’s imaging as much as the music. The following year, Dom was lucky enough to land an interning gig at Hits 103.5 (Z103.5 today).
From there, Dom went on to study Radio Broadcasting at Seneca College. Although the program covered all areas of radio, Dom was really only interested in one… Imaging. While in college, Dom worked part-time at 104.5CHUM FM and landed a full-time position at Y108 shortly thereafter as the Morning Show/Imaging Producer. By this time, Dom had already started working as a freelancer for some U.S. radio stations and also headed back to Seneca College… not as a student this time, but as the Radio Imaging Professor. After a year and a half of teaching, Dom was offered the Imaging position at Hot97 in NYC. Emmis owned three stations in the cluster at that time. Three years after solely imaging Hot, Dom was asked to also image the Urban AC station 98.7 Kiss FM. Shortly after, Dom was asked to image the Rock station in the cluster and was offered the position of CSD New York for Emmis.
Dom Nero is the fifth speaker to be announced for The Imaging Days 2015: the only radioimaging event in the world. Other elite speakers and talent who will perform at The Imaging Days 2015: Kelly Doherty (VP of Imaging iHeartMedia), Chris Hartgers (Radio 538/SLAM!FM), John Frost (FrostBytes) and Niels Franken (Radio 538).

After the huge success of the first edition, this year the world of radio imaging “becomes one” on the 5th and 6th of October in De Lichtfabriek in Haarlem (the Netherlands).
