Ryan Rathbone (pictured), the group content director for Grant Broadcasters, has announced some key appointments to strengthen the content and operations structure for the company’s Victorian and South Australian Radio stations.
The current regional content director for Victoria, Mark Hyland, will now assume overall responsibility for all 15 radio stations across Victoria and South Australia as well as maintaining his content leadership position with both K Rock 95.5 and Bay 93.9 in Geelong.
Tom Lewis will continue to co-host the highly successful K Rock 95.5 breakfast show as well as taking on the assistant content director for the station.
Woking closely with Mark will be Glenn Bakker, currently the content director for Magic 105.9, 5AU and 5CS in the Spencer Gulf, who will now add operations manager for all South Australian stations to his portfolio.
Adam Connelly has been appointed as the new content director of 5MU and Power FM in Murray Bridge and will continue to host 5MU breakfast.
“As has been proven time and time again at Grant Broadcasters, we are very fortunate to be in a position where the best people for the roles are already in our business. The new structure will allow us to better share the knowledge and experience of our most senior content creators and certainly improve communication across the group.” said Rathbone.
The changes are effective immediately.
