More DMG sackings
There have been further sackings at DMG Radio, on this occasion in Sydney.
Late yesterday afternoon, the News Director for Nova 969 and 95.3 Denee Savoia and 95.3 presenter Anthony Maroon (right) were axed, and have now left the company.
This follows the sackings of around half of the DMG Melbourne newsroom earlier on Tuesday afternoon. Nikole Gunn, James Lake and Bree Roberts were axed from the Nova/91.5 newsroom (read here).
A DMG insider has said that their understanding is that the redundancies are preceding a formal relaunch of 95.3 and 91.5 in their new format: which, based on what they are presently playing, is best described as a 'Variety AC' with a 40-54 female target.
The company is yet to take the brands to market. Below is a recent daytime hour from what appears to be the new format for 95.3/91.5.
