HT&E’s radio business ARN has appointed Tony Aldridge as content director for Melbourne’s KIIS 101.1. It means the Adelaide market has lost another key radio executive following the departure of Sue Carter to ARN’s Gold 104.3 12 months ago.
Aldridge joined ARN in 2018 as content director for Mix 102.3 and Cruise 1323 in Adelaide, where he replaced Carter, and built on previous success for the station including the city’s #1 breakfast show hosted by Jodie and Soda.
Aldridge will work shaping the content strategy for KIIS and take on all operational responsibility for the station alongside KIIS 101.1 assistant content director Daniel Bozykowski, and with focus on both the Jase & PJ breakfast show and the Will and Woody national drive show.
ARN national content director Duncan Campbell said: “I’m delighted to welcome Tony to the role of KIIS 101.1 content director in Melbourne and pleased to be able to make this appointment internally as well.
“During his time in Adelaide, Tony’s leadership skills along with his creativity and attention to detail created an environment that brought out the best in our team there. Tony will strengthen the team at KIIS 101.1 and highlights our continued focus on the station.”
