SCOOP: WSFM content director Scott Muller has left the building
In what feels like one of the biggest weeks of radio roulette, Radio Today can reveal that WSFM Sydney content director Scott Muller is out.
Australian Radio Network confirmed Muller’s departure with Radio Today on Thursday.
His next destination is not yet known and no replacement has been confirmed, but ARN did provide a statement teasing updates on its content team could be “weeks” away.
“Scott Muller’s fixed-term contract as WSFM’scontent director has come to an end and he will leave the business.
“ARN thank Scott for his contribution to the station and for his achievements over the past two years. We’ll share more details about the WSFM content team in the coming weeks.”
Muller, a widely respected programming consultant and talent coach, joined WSFM in January 2018 and appeared on Radio Today’s 40 Most Influential People in Australian Radio in 2019 in July.
During his career, Muller led Nova 96.9 to #1 in Sydney and delivered Capital Radio London its first significant growth in a decade.
He replaced Charlie Fox at the Pure Gold station, who spent over a decade steering the ship to many victories with Brendan Jones and Amanda Keller on Breakfast before Muller’s arrival.
The network announced today that it has axed the Bianca, Mike & Bob show on 97.3FM Brisbane, with Gallagher and Bianca Dye to remain with ARN in another capacity.
“At the end of the day, I understand that change is part of working in this industry and while I will miss the breakfast show I’m looking forward what lies ahead for me at ARN in 2020,” Dye told Radio Today.
The show’s executive producer, Liam Renton, was also shown the door.
