Louise Montafia joins Grant Broadcasters as Cairns general manager
Grant Broadcasters has a new general manager for its Cairns radio stations Star 102.7 and 4CA.
The job opened up when Paul Woodhouse moved to Grants’ Townsville operation to take up the post there.
In his place in Cairns will be Louise Montafia.
Montafia was a founding director of Thrive PR & Communications, but most recently worked at News Corp as sales manager and then marketing manager at Lendlease in Cairns.
Grant Broadcasters said she boasted a wealth of experience in general management, marketing and PR.
Matt Chapman, state manager across Queensland and the Northern Territory, said he is thrilled to bring Montafia into the fold.
“Every time I visit Cairns, I only hear positive things about Louise throughout the local business community. Can’t wait for Louise to start her radio career with us in a few weeks,” he said.
Montafia said she is extremely excited to join the Grant Broadcasters family and lead the two stations.
“I can’t wait to join the team and continue to deliver great creative content for our listeners and drive commercial success for our clients. When speaking with Matt Chapman, the drive and passion around our local community was such a strong focus for him and the management team, I knew this was the job for me,” she added.
