After taking a year off to look after her new baby, Toni Pipicelli (left) is about to return to Nova in a new role, in a new city.
Toni will be Group Music Operations Director, based in her hometown of Melbourne. She will work on the rollout of dmg Radio's new play out system, the expansion of Rdio and Jetstar as well as their digital and analogue radio portfolios.
Mike Cass, dmg Radio’s Assistant Group PD said, “With so many exciting projects coming up in the next 12 months, it’s great to have Toni back in the team in Melbourne to drive these forward.”
Toni said, “After having the most incredible year to learn the basics of being a mum, I'm looking forward to being back at dmg Radio and working across all the music properties on some very exciting projects. Being home in Melbourne just makes this role even sweeter, as I get to ensure my daughter really understands why she will be a Hawks supporter for life!"
Toni has been with Nova since November 2001 and has worked in various roles including APD of Nova 100, MD at Nova 96.9 and was most recently Group MD for the Nova network. She will begin her new role on June 24.
