Austereo restructures sales team, ‘no comment’ on redundancies

Following the acquisition of Austereo by Southern Cross Media Group, Austereo has rejigged its sales team.

Group national sales director regional, Mediaworks, Jeremy Simpson (pictured) has been appointed director of sales for the combined TV and radio group.

Simpson will work with Cathy Thomas, who will continue in her role as the national sales director, radio, reporting to director of metro radio, Guy Dobson.

Thomas’s duties will be expanded to cover national sales for Southern Cross Media’s metropolitan and regional stations as well as the independent networks.

On the question of redundancies, which seem likely following the merger, SCM’s CEO Rhys Holleran said: “It has not been the company’s policy to give a running commentary on its internal decision making process.”
