‘It’s been a career highlight’: Scott Muller on WSFM exit [exclusive]
Almost immediately, radio heads began to speculate about his next move.
Radio Today reached out to Muller, who cryptically said his next destination won’t “necessarily be of interest” to readers, which could mean almost anything.
“Yes, my two-year fixed-term with ARN has come to an end, so I’m moving on,” he said.
“I can’t discuss what’s next until after the New Year – though I’m not suggesting it’ll necessarily be of interest to Radio Today readers.
“What I can say is it’s been a privilege to step into the big shoes of the legendary Charlie Fox and to build on his great achievements at WSFM.
“It’s been a career highlight, an honour, and hilarious fun to work with Jonesy & Amanda, EPs Laura Bouchet and Millie Michael, and the whole WSFM team to set new all-time ratings-records for WSFM.”
Muller replaced Charlie Fox at the Pure Gold station, who spent over a decade steering the ship to many victories with Brendan Jones and Amanda Keller on Breakfast before his arrival at ARN.
During his career, he also led Nova 96.9 to #1 in Sydney and delivered Capital Radio London its first significant growth in a decade.
“Not many people can say they’ve been at the helm of two completely different #1 FM stations in Sydney – it’s pretty much Charlie and me – so that’s nice, too, and I have to thank master-strategist Duncan Campbell for that opportunity,” he added.
“It’s also been fantastic to work with Gary Roberts once again, this time on helping revitalise 96fm Perth – that station rocks!”
Muller, a widely respected consultant and talent coach, joined WSFM in January 2018 and appeared on Radio Today’s 40 Most Influential People in Australian Radio in 2019 in July.
