Radio Today Podcast: Has the Sony scandal finally laid the path for radio’s #MeToo movement?

Staff Writer

This week on Radio Today Tonight, Jake and Viv delve into Monday night’s Four Corners episode that revealed some of the reasons behind Denis Handlin’s departure from Sony Music Australia and the company’s problematic culture under his reign.

If someone as embedded in the halls of power such as Handlin can fall, does this pave the way for radio’s own reckoning? Will radio’s #MeToo movement finally take off?

Radio Today Tonight comes to you each Thursday mixing the biggest news of the week, along with a discussion of all the personalities, politics and pressures involved in the audio industry.

It will be jointly hosted by Radio Today editor Vivienne Kelly and publisher Jake Challenor.

Thanks Radio Today. Very carefully managed.

It looks like the big story that everyone knows is waiting to be published but has been suppressed by the networks legal council, and they are unbelievably celebrating that fact, has just been given a very important new lease of life.

As the 4 Corners story showed, powerful people protecting perpetrators only lasts so long

The radio executive’s name has become so publicly talked about now that it’s almost irrelevant if it’s ever published. Amongst media agencies, media companies and record labels, the negative image associated with the person is already having a broader impact on the company as a whole. So the legal team is just extending the damage.

We have put so much time, so much emotional stress and so much resource into managing one individual’s reputation. When is enough enough. It’s just really upsetting for the people that have the best interests of the company in mind. Wish we could move forward and finally forget about our dark past
