MIX 102.3’s Richie Wright moves from content director to new national role

The Advertiser reports: “There’s been another shake-up at Mix 102.3. MIX 102.3’s Richie Wright has been moved on from his role as content director, but management is denying it has anything to do with rumours of tension between him and the station’s top-rating breakfast duo. Wright had been in the role for Mix and Cruise 1323, which are both owned by ARN (Australian Radio Network).He has returned from holidays to be promoted to a newly created position. Wright was named in rumours of an alleged rift with Mix 102.3 breakfast announcers Mark Soderstrom and Erin Phillips. When asked if Wright’s new role had anything to do with the rumours a spoksperson for ARN gave a firm “no”. Wright is now the national content operations manager. Mix 102.3 and Cruise 1323 music director for the past decade, Jeff Burzacott, has taken over Wright’s role as content director for both stations.”
