Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) has appointed Gina Hogan as the general manager of its Perth operations.
Hogan will oversee the day-to-day operations of Mix 94.5 – Perth’s #1 station – and , Perth’s #1 station for under 40s.
The position in Perth has been vacant since former Perth GM Linda Wayman announced her departure in March this year.
As part of a team of general managers led by SCA’s chief operating officer, John Kelly, Hogan will lead Perth’s collaboration with SCA’s national executives implementing the company initiatives at a local market level.
Hogan has more than 17 years’ experience in management and leading corporate sales and content direction for media companies across radio and television. Since 2009, she has been general manager of SCA’s Cairns and Tablelands business with prior roles as station manager at Seven Network and Prime Radio.
John Kelly said: “I am delighted that after her strong performance at our Cairns operation Gina is now going to take her exemplary management skills to run our metropolitan operations in Perth.”
Hogan said: “I’m thrilled to be taking on new challenges in Perth, and I’m certainly looking forward to the move to WA. With family in the region, I am not a complete stranger to the West.”
Hogan will start in her new position on July 17 and will report to John Kelly.
