Podcast 50/2014:
Nova Red Room Global Tour #1

Tony Thomas, group marketing director, Nova Entertainment
Insights into how Nova Entertainment runs its Red Room operation and how the sponsors for the Global Tour became involved. Hear about the challenges the company faced with logistics, costs and finding the artists. Essential listening if you should have your brand associated with special events like this and probably good to listen to if you work in the media business and have ever run a competition for listeners. Recorded in the Qantas lounge at LAX during the Samantha Jade Red Room.
(Check out our first Tony Thomas podcast too from 18 months ago talking about marketing basics and his marketing career in and out of the media sector.)

Kent Small (Smallzy), Nova Network evening host, Tour MC
Nova's ACRA-winning national evening host is the Nova brand's music guru and he appears on his second Mediaweek podcast recorded at the end of the Global Tour. As well as covering off all the action from the tour, Smallzy talks about his evening show this year, his relationships with music companies (and who needs who most) and we even get to hear about his strictly behind-the-scenes executive producer Zach.

Podcast 52/2014:
Nova Red Room Global Tour #3
Nigel Lopez-McBean
, assistant director social media & content marketing, Optus (the sponsor)
The final podcast in this series of three recorded in the USA. We tracked down the rep for sponsor Optus in one of the biggest breakfast buffets in Las Vegas. Lopez-McBean had been not just living it large in swanky hotels full of beautiful people and popstars, he had been filming them too. He gives us some insights into the soon-to-be released piece of content he has been filming during the Global Tour. He also talks about Optus and how social media plays an important part of marketing and customer satisfaction for the telco. Nigel is such a good bloke he will have you thinking about saying Yes and tearing up your existing telco contact if you're with a competitor!
