Nikki Rooke named SCA’s national head of radio sales
Southern Cross Austereo has appointed former Seven West Media sales director Nikki Rooke to the newly created position of national head of radio sales.
Commencing the role in November and reporting to chief sales officer Brian Gallagher, Rooke will lead the radio sales teams across SCA’s metro and regional assets.
“Nikki knows everything there is to know about radio sales,” Gallagher said of her appointment. “Her extensive media sales experience coupled with her passion for radio makes her an ideal leader for this role and a great mentor for the teams under her watch.”
Prior to joining Seven West Media in 2011, Rooke held a number of positions at SCA, her most recent being Sydney agency sales director.
“I am very excited to be returning to SCA and to be working with Brian and all the talented people at SCA, some of whom I have had the pleasure of working with before,” she said.
“Radio is a great passion of mine and the Hit Network and Triple M brands are close to my heart so this opportunity is impossible to resist. Radio remains a dynamic and resilient medium that delivers results for brands and advertisers and I’m looking forward to being part of its very bright future.”
