Confirmed: Hot Breakfast EP Jay Mueller to exit Triple M Melbourne for Group CD role
The Pacific Star Network – which includes all 1116 SEN Programming, Classic Rock Radio, Aussie Digital, Koool and their respective digital platforms – has announced Jay Mueller will join the team as Group Content Director of Broadcast and Digital.
Mueller will join the team in February 2018 and was selected due to his strong digital acumen, extensive sports media experience and his ability to lead a team to be the number one in their field.
The news dropped two hours into Mick Molloy‘s final show on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast this morning, where Mueller is currently the Executive Producer.
As one of the most respected people in talkback radio both from a producing and on-air perspective, Mueller is looking forward to joining the Pacific Star team.
“To join the team at 1116 SEN and its sister stations, is an exciting opportunity that presents fresh career challenges. After eight fond years at Triple M it was time to take the next step in my professional development and when this opportunity came up, I didn’t have to think long before saying yes,” said Mueller.
Pacific Star’s radio GM, Cathy Thomas, said that Mueller’s expertise across traditional radio and the digital world, combined with his passion for the industry is unparalleled.
“After completing an extensive national search of the market, we kept coming back to Mueller as our number one choice. His reputation, relationship with his on-air team and colleagues, coupled with his determination and drive to continue to innovate for the listener and sponsor is second to none,” said Thomas.
“The experience held by Mueller specifically in relation to digital talkback and creating and growing podcasts was a key drawcard for us.
“We look forward to welcoming Mueller into the new role of Group Content Director of Broadcast and Digital at Pacific Star.”
