ACE Radio has announced a change of leadership in their programming across the ACE Radio Network. Mat Cummins is re-assuming total control of all 18 ACE stations (whilst remaining Gippsland General Manager of TRFM/Gold1242). Mat was previously Group Content Director of ACE over a 5 year period. Mat says he is pleased to be back in the “ACE Group Content Director” chair, a position that he missed. Jon Vertigan who for the last 18 months was the ACE Content Director, will now focus on Easy Music 3MP only from a programming point of view as we move to re-establish the once iconic 3MP brand and format. Jon’s new title is “ACE Metro Content Director.”
The Daily Telegraph reports that ABC Radio Sydney has made major changes to its line-up, with big names set to depart their posts next year. James Valentine is out of the prime time breakfast slot with The Chaser’s Craig Reucassel to replace him in a bid to stop haemorrhaging ratings.
