Hit Gold Coast’s content director Ali Longhurst resigns

Former Editor & Content Director

The Hit Network’s Gold Coast station Hit90.9 is on the hunt for a new content director, with Ali Longhurst set to leave the station.

Longhurst joined the Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) station two years ago, taking over from Corey Kay who moved to Gold 92.5 (now Triple M).

She’s previously been the EP of Galey & Charli on Sea FM (now Hit), as well as the executive producer for Matt & Meshel on KIIS Melbourne and senior producer on Fox FM’s Fifi, Fev & Byron.

SCA confirmed Longhurst’s departure and said it was recruiting for a replacement CD.

It’s not yet clear where Longhurst is going.

In the Gold Coast’s most recent ratings, Hit had a 9.2% share, behind market leader Hot Tomato’s 18.5%.

Its Breakfast show Bianca, Dan & Ben had 11.0%, up 2.5 points, but still behind Hot Tomato’s Galey, Emily Jade & Christo Breakfast Show, which fell 3.7 points to 16.6%.

Ali will be missed by our entire team. She was slowly rebuilding the terrible culture left behind by past leaders.

Can’t wait to see where Ali ends up. The cream always rises to the top. Such a huge loss for the Gold Coast as they finally had great leadership.
