Mathew Eggleston becomes 2DayFM’s content director
Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) stalwart Mathew ‘Eggo’ Eggleston is 2DayFM Sydney’s new content director.
Eggleston has previously been the music director at SAFM, Fox FM, 2DayFM and the wider Hit Network. He’s also held the content director role for Hit105 in Brisbane (now B105 again), before moving into national roles including Hit Network national operations manager.
For a brief stint last year, he was content manager for 2DayFM, however when the station recruited Simon Greally as creative director of the station, he stepped back to focus on his national operations manager role.
Greally, however, only lasted a matter of months and has since departed.
Greally’s departure seems to have opened up the opportunity for Eggleston to return to 2Day, with head of the Hit Network Gemma Fordham saying it’s an exciting time for the station.
“Eggo has 2DayFM in his blood, his true passion for the station and brand is obvious and he will inject his enthusiasm into the 2Day product and shows,” she said.
“It’s an exciting time for 2Day with our new The Morning Crew with Hughesy, Ed & Erin Breakfast show and we are looking forward to having Eggo on the team.”
Eggleston said he’s excited to get started and lead the talented team.
“When it comes to radio, 2DayFM was always the dream as a young kid growing up in Newcastle. I’ve had the pleasure of working here on multiple occasions already over my time in radio, but nothing compares to getting the keys to the station as the content director,” he said.
The appointment is effective immediately.
