ARN has announced its content director Charlie Fox and veteran broadcaster Ron E Sparks are to leave the network.

“I want to thank Charlie for his commitment to WSFM and his work with Jonesy & Amanda in breakfast,” he said.

“I also want acknowledge Ron E Sparks who has been an icon of Sydney radio since the late 1970s and wish him the best for the next stage of his impressive career.”
