On The Dial: Michelle from Grill Team gone; Copyright Tribunal back on today; SCA’s new Partnership
CEO Roundtable: Grant Blackley LIVE AT 2pm
Grant Blackley is set to take the reins of Southern Cross Austereo later this month as their new CEO and Managing Director.
His media career spans some 30 years including CEO of Network Ten.
In part one of our CEO Roundtable with Grant, we will talk about how he balances people’s fears of change, while at the same time getting them inspired about the future. We talk about what he looks for in the people he works with and what issues he is going tackle first with SCA.
Michelle Anderson from Grill Team gone
The Triple M Grill Team Brisbane is down to two, with confirmation late Friday that Michelle Anderson has left the show.
We reached out to Group CD Mike Fitzpatrick who confirmed to Radio Today that she had left and that “It’s Marto & Ed from Monday.”
Copyright Tribunal back on today
The PPCA, representing Australian record companies, and CRA, representing commercial radio head back to the Copyright Tribunal today.
It’s getting down to the pointy end as both parties put forward their arguments this week before the Tribunal passes judgment.
At the start of 2014 the commercial radio industry drew a line in the sand, as all regional markets across the country pulled the pin on their internet streams. Nearly all still have dead air online – nearly 18 months later.
SCA’s new Partnership
Southern Cross Austereo have partnered with Triton Digital to bring the first Programmatic Audio Ad Exchange to Australia.
Triton Digital out of the US, is known for its delivery of smart tech for the audio industry. The deal will see the partnership bring a2x®, the world’s first online audio advertising exchange to Australia in June.
