Mark Noakes departs Macquarie Media

Mark Noakes is no longer required at Macquarie Media, following a restructure of the Macquarie sales team

The latest announcement from Nine’s managing director of radio Tom Malone sees Noakes’ position; head of commercial, made redundant.

In an email to staff, Malone explained the change pertains to the aligning of Macquarie’s sales structure with that of new owner Nine.

Noakes had racked up more than 15 years at Macquarie, first joining the company in 2002.

“[Mark] has made a significant contribution to the business over many years at 2GB and then in the wider radio network as we came together as one business across 2GB/3AW/4BC/6PR,” said Malone.

“I want to take this opportunity to take Mark for everything he has contributed to Macquarie. He leaves with our best wishes and thanks.”

Noakes is the latest to depart Macquarie in the wake of Nine’s official takeover of the business. He follows national executive producer Michael Thompson, and 3AW overnight host Alan Pearsall.

Malone also moved to re-instate 3AW station boss Stephen Beers, and earlier this week hired Sky News executive producer Greg Byrnes as Macquarie Media’s new head of content.

Radio Today caught up with Malone ahead of his first day on the job to go over his game plan, leading Nine Entertainment’s newly-controlled radio assets.
