iHeartRadio Australia on the hunt for music director and programmer
Australian Radio Network’s (ARN) iHeartRadio Australia platform is recruiting a music director and programmer.
The role was previously occupied by Miranda Boyce, and the recruitment process comes alongside a series of changes at the platform.
Its chief operating officer, Geraint Davies, exited last year, and chief content officer at ARN, Duncan Campbell, then flagged a strategic shift for the platform and increased focus on it in the year ahead.
Then today, it was announced Corey Layton would absorb additional responsibilities for the platform. Layton had been head of commercial audio and podcasts, which included the iHeartPodcast Network Australia. From today, he will be head of digital audio, which includes the wider iHeartRadio and podcasting strategy.
The vacant iHeartRadio Australia music director and programmer role will report into content director Brett ‘Nozz’ Nossiter.
“We are looking for a highly experienced music programmer, with strong attention to detail, to work across a wide range of music genres, formats, and specials,” Nozz told Radio Today. “It’s a really exciting gig, and the successful applicant will play a vital role in an important growth year for iHeartRadio.”
The job ad explains the iHeartRadio Australia music director and programmer will be responsible for the management of the day-to-day optimising and delivery of all music scheduling for the platform.
It will involve liaising with record company reps to ensure a good working relationship, and organising interviews, content opportunities, radio specials and iHeartRadio Lives.
The company is seeking someone with at least three years’ experience in a similar role who has the ability to manage a music scheduling system, audio editing, audio downloads and Nexgen player (or similar).
