In what will be a loss for the Australian Radio Network, the broadcaster revealed today that one of its key executives is departing.
Chief marketing officer Anthony Xydis (pictured) leaves the company short of person to steer its ad campaigns – messaging that has worked very well recently with the company boasting the #1 national network and the #1 FM breakfast shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Of his decision to leave the business, Xydis said: “I’ve had an incredible seven years at ARN. I’ve worked with some wonderful people across the business, including our great business partners. I am very proud of all the achievements I’ve been able to contribute to as part of the executive team and the amazing brand and marketing team. In these unprecedented times, the power of radio and audio to entertain, inform and connect has never been more important and I look forward to hearing more of the team’s excellent work moving forward.”
ARN CEO Ciaran Davis said: “Anthony has been a valued member of the executive team. In his seven years at ARN he has led the brand, marketing and corporate communications strategy for a number of pivotal moments for the business including the launch of Sydney’s KIIS 1065 with Kyle & Jackie O, the rebrand of WSFM in Sydney, the launch of The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show in Melbourne and the rollout of the KIIS Network and iHeartRadio across Australia. We all wish him the very best in his future endeavours.”
