Peter Maynard is the new General Manager of dmg's Adelaide station's FIVEaa and Nova 919.

Maynard was the GM of Austereo Adelaide from 2007 until 2010 when he moved to Melbourne to be the General Manager Commercial Operations at the Melbourne Football Club.

Cathy O’Connor, dmg Radio Australia CEO said:

“Peter’s significant radio experience and knowledge of the Adelaide market make him a fantastic appointment for dmg Radio. We are thrilled to be welcoming Peter back to Adelaide as General Manager for FIVEaa and Nova 919 and are looking forward to working with him to build on our great brands in this market.”

Maynard has been Group Sales Manager and Sales Director of SAFM, Duopoly Group Sales Manager for Triple M and Fox FM and Austereo National Sales Director. He was also Sales Director for Austereo Melbourne in 2006 and in October of that year became Acting Melbourne General Manager before becoming the boss at Austereo Adelaide.

Maynard said: “I am very excited to be given this opportunity and to return to radio. I am a passionate radio person, I know the Adelaide market very well and am genuinely excited by the future for both the Nova and FIVEaa brands.”

Peter is replacing Sean O'Brien who left to become Managing Director of Channel Nine Adelaide two months ago. Gary Roberts, General Manager of Nova 937 Perth, has been interim General Manager of Adelaide whilst dmg searched for a permanent replacement.

Maynard will start early in October.
