ARN adds national operations manager via internal promotion

Australian Radio Network (ARN) has announced two promotions, with Richie Wright moving into the newly created role of national content operations manager, and Jeff Burzacott taking up the role of content director, Adelaide.

In the new role, Wright will work closely with ARN’s chief content officer Duncan Campbell and content directors around the country to carry out the company’s audio content strategy for listener and commercial content across all of ARN’s radio, music and podcast platforms.

Burzacott takes the role of content director in Adelaide from Wright, who was appointed into the position in October 2020. The role was previously held by Barry Keohane, who left to join Grant Broadcasters as  regional content director across Victoria and South Australia.

Burzacott will oversee Mix 102.3 and Cruise 1323, both stations of which he has been music director of for the past 10 years. During this time he has also worked as acting content director.

“Richie’s creative and operational skills will be perfect for his new national role to provide support for the content teams across all our platforms – radio, music and podcasts.
