EXCLUSIVE: Wade Kingsley to leave SCA for new venture
Wade Kingsley will exit his role as head of SCA’s The Studio, a tactics and integrations brand he helped create for the network.
Radio Today has learned that Kingsley has decided to embark on a new venture and will start his own business. However, he will continue to work with SCA “across a number of areas”.
“We will have further news on how and in what capacity this will happen,” an SCA spokesperson told Radio Today.
Before joining SCA, Kingsley was GM of media agency Vizeum. He joined SCA in May 2015 to lead the tactics, creative and client response teams, and after initially supporting the promotions teams, he set about building what is now known as ‘The Studio’.
“The high level of work produced by The Studio teams across the country is a reflection of the passion, energy and commitment Wade has given to the business,” the spokesperson said.
Kingsley also spent 15 years with DMG Radio (now NOVA Entertainment) where he oversaw the highly successful launch of Nova 106.9 Brisbane as its promotions and marketing director and held group leadership roles in digital, sales and programming.
When he first arrived at SCA two years ago, Kingsley said, “In media, there is no finish line. The battles are never won or lost each day or each individual ratings survey – they are ongoing. I look forward to leading the team to develop strategies that will be successful for our listeners, clients and shareholders over the long term.”
Radio Today understands that SCA is looking to transition The Studio to new leadership with a replacement to be confirmed shortly.
