SCA Chief Content Officer, Dave Cameron, today announced a new and refreshed Content leadership structure that will provide maximum support with accompanying leadership across the national Hit and Triple M networks.
The new Content leadership team will drive the Hit and Triple M Metro and regional stations, with the regional radio stations to now become SCA’s ‘Community’ division.
“This new structure will provide a strong level of expertise and experience to lead, for both on and off-air content roles. It will also streamline our operations across the Metro and Community divisions delivering greater clarity, effectiveness and simplicity,” Cameron said.
“I believe that our radio networks comprising 99 stations in total have the best Content talent in the market and this new structure marks an exciting new chapter in SCA content across our Metro and Community divisions.”
