CEO Round Table: Grant Blackley

Grant Blackley is set to take the reins of Southern Cross Austereo later this month as their new CEO and Managing Director.

In Part Two of our CEO Roundtable with Grant, we ask what he thinks SCA will look like in three years time: “Our challenge is to ensure that they are watching and listening to our assets more than they are today.”

We also ask what, in his view, is the biggest issue facing radio and what would happen to the company if cross media laws changed?

And about an area Grant is passionate about; media ‘disruption'.
