Southern Cross Austereo’s chief creative officer Guy Dobson has announced Dave Cameron will take on the new role of head of national content and development and Gemma Fordham is the new head of Hit Network, content.
Guy Dobson said, “After five years of heading up the Hit Network, and 11 years as the successful head of the Fox, (the biggest FM station in the country), Dave will now focus his attention on overseeing and programming all national shows and talent across both the Hit and Triple M Networks, ensuring they are both creatively and strategically deployed.
“Dave will also oversee all new partnerships, ventures, formats and shows across our DAB+ digital radio offering, which will be increased significantly in the New Year as DAB+ starts to grow rapidly. Development is an undeniable strength of Dave’s and it will be invaluable to the broader business over the ensuing years.”
Guy added, “Gemma Fordham, recently chief content officer at NZME, and previously at Austereo as breakfast content manager for 2DAY FM, will bring focus, clarity and a great understanding of what makes a breakfast show tick. Gemma will utilise all resources at her disposal to ensure the new era for the Hit Network is a successful and memorable one.”
Fordham will start with SCA in the New Year.
