SCA Music Hub launch sees multiple staffing changes across Hit and Triple M
Southern Cross Austereo has launched the SCA Music Hub, a new initiative within the business which is set to consolidate its music specialists across the company.
The announcement initially saw Irene Hulme promoted to the role of head of music for Hit Network & Triple M, and now Radio Today can reveal a number of other movements within SCA.
On the Triple M side of things, Triple M head of music Rex Morris leaves his current role of two years and will now focus on Triple M Brisbane.
Jacqui Kassulke takes on the role of music director for Triple M Sydney and Melbourne, while Vinnie Shannon is now in charge of music for Triple M Adelaide and Mix 94.5 Perth.
In addition, Ben Wood has been moved to the operations manager role of Triple M Melbourne.
Within the Hit Network, Kiri Martin has moved to become MD of 2DayFM and Hit107 Adelaide.
Hit Brisbane MD Jack Ball will also now look after Hit Perth, and Troy Nelson has become national music assistant.
Lindsay Harapa will also take on a new role, leaving 2DayFM to become content director for Hit Digital radio.
Adam Williscroft is now the content director for Triple M digital radio.
The reshuffle sees Toni Tenaglia, Michael McPhee and Aiden Grant depart the business.
“With the advancements of technology and to align with the strategy of folding in SCA’s digital radio stations with the parent HIT and TRIPLE M brands, we have moved to structure our teams to support this,” said Triple M and Hit Network heads of content Mike Fitzpatrick and Gemma Fordham in a joint statement.
“As a result, we’re glad to announce a new initiative; the creation of the SCA Music Hub. What this means, is a more collaborative and streamlined approach to executing the music strategy for all of our stations.”
