Cherie Romaro, former General Manager of 2CH, has been honoured by AFTRS. She was
presented with an honorary degree from the Australian Film Television and Radio School, with Broadcaster Mitch Torres and VR Artist Lynette Wallworth also honoured. Cherie was Australia’s first female music director for Radio 2SM, Sydney and Program Director for Triple M, Sydney, before becoming Australia’s first female Radio Network General Manager with the ARN in 1992.
Rick Lenarcic has resigned from his position as COO Regional at ARN. He announced: “After nearly 30 years in the media, many different and exciting roles, moving/living across this great country, being part of many mergers and acquisitions and too many flights, long road trips, dodgy hotel rooms and meetings, I now need to spend time with my beautiful wife and loving family and start working on my health to get prepared for my next chapter in the book of life.”
