Radio Today

Radio Today is the leading website for the Australian and New Zealand radio industry, and our traffic is independently audited by the Audited Media Association of Australia. No radio focused site in Australia or New Zealand has higher traffic numbers than Radio Today.

Radio Today is not a monologue, but a dialogue, and whether you work in the largest competitive markets, the smallest regional markets, or are involved in the industry in some other way; you have a role to play in this dialogue and we encourage you to do so.

The Editor of Radio Today is Blair Sullivan.

Blair has a long history in commercial radio in Australia, and has worked internationally in roles with Xtra Research, and RCS. Blair's commercial radio credentials are impressive, having worked as a senior Group Programmer with (the then) dmg Regional Radio in Townsville, overseeing Queensland.

Blair has also programmed, or announced, at a myriad of radio stations from Griffith to the Sunshine Coast to Mackay to Brisbane. He left the day-to-day radio environment a few years ago to join RCS in Sydney, and subsequently joined Paul Amos in 2004 at Xtra as Research Director; working with radio groups in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, China, Indonesia, Greece, India, Spain and the United Kingdom.

During this role Blair also oversaw the scheduling software, MusicMaster, and its Australian clients. Since leaving Xtra in January 2014 Blair has launched his own business, Create Consult Research, and commenced with Radio Today as Editor in July 2014.
