Alex Ryan appointed executive producer of Hit’s Nick, Jess & Ducko
Hit106.9 in Newcastle has a new executive producer for its Breakfast program Nick, Jess & Ducko.
Radio Today understands the Hit Network station has announced Alex Ryan as the new EP.
She takes over from Sophie Campbell, who has been in the role since March last year.
In recent years, Ryan has been a Weekend announcer at Newcastle’s NEWFM, and also worked on the street team and as a casual producer for ARN’s KIIS 106.5 on programs including The Kyle & Jackie O Show and Winter Breakfast with Mitch Churi.
In the most recent radio ratings for Newcastle, Nick Jess & Ducko – featuring Nick Gill, Jess Farchione and Nick ‘Ducko’ Allen-Ducat – placed behind SCA stablemate Triple M. The show had a 13.5% share, down 0.6 points to Triple M’s 20.0%. It was, however, well ahead of NEWFM’s 8.0% share in the timeslot.
Ryan begins her new role in October.
Campbell has been approached for comment about her movements.
