Southern Cross Austereo has announced the appointment of Jennifer Goggin as content director PodcastOne Australia.
Goggin replaces Jaime Chaux, who is leaving SCA to become head of digital at Commercial Radio Australia.
As a radio, documentary and podcast producer, Goggin’s career has spanned podcasting, online, social media and radio broadcasting. During her time as a podcast producer with the BBC, she has been responsible for all elements of podcast production from concept to publishing.
In her new role, Goggin is responsible for the execution of PodcastOne Australia’s content strategy.
Together with the head of PodcastOne Grant Tothill, Goggin will be responsible for the selection, commissioning and development of new original podcasts.
Her broad role includes managing the PodcastOne US and Australian content slate, managing the team of podcast producers, overseeing the PodcastOne digital social lead to create compelling social and digital content to deliver audience reach and engagement via digital platforms, supporting monetisation of the content and managing the relationship between PodcastOne Australia and PodcastOne US content teams.
Grant Tothill said: “We are thrilled to welcome Jennifer to the PodcastOne team. As an experienced podcast maker and qualified journalist, she is a wonderful addition to our growing podcasting family and with her experience and qualifications she brings new thinking to our team.
“We haven’t even reached our first birthday yet and PodcastOne is growing in its popularity and reach every week driven primarily through its domestic podcasts. With over 40 original locally created podcasts, and with many more in development, the growth of the business is showing Australians are hungry for high-quality storytelling audio on demand.”
Goggin starts her new role on March 26 and she will report to Tothill.
