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 Courier-Mail reports that Nova 106.9 radio presenter Kip Wightman has quit the network’s top-rating breakfast show Ash, Kip, Luttsy & Susie after 15 years.
