Ash Wright departs Sonshine 98.5 Perth after 24 years to take on new global role


After 24 years of serving Sonshine Media in Perth as Broadcast and Tech Director, as well as using his skills to assist many other stations around Australia, Ash Wright is moving on.

Ash has accepted the role of Senior Software Developer with global media engagement software group Broadcast Bionics.

For years Ash has been developing cutting edge IT solutions, to integrate with broadcast engineering and make listener and user engagement easier and less costly for Sonshine 98.5, as well as many other community stations and not-for-profits around Australia.

This includes the ‘Profiler’ Client and Information Management System, which is widely used by many of Australia’s NFPs.

Sonshine’s CEO Bevan Jones says “While half of me was panicking to lose such a key person in our organisation, the other half was proud that Ash has been pushing himself to take on bigger challenges. In fact, I would have been upset with him if he didn’t take the global opportunity this role with Broadcast Bionics presents him.”

“Thankfully for us, Ash has been training and equipping others in our organisation to take up his responsibilities.”

Ash finishes up with Sonshine today – February 3 – to take up his new Perth-based global role.
