DMG drafts Austereo’s Sydney sales director Parkes

DMG Radio has drafted Austereo’s Sydney sales director Jenny Parkes to the role of group sales director.  

In her 12-year career with the rival network Parkes held various sales manger positions. She was also previously acting general manager at 2DayFM and Triple M for eight months in 2009.

Prior to that, she started her media career with News Limited and Fairfax’s BRW.

She will replace Keith Thomas who is leaving after 12 years with DMG. Parkes will commence in her new position on July 1.

Meanwhile, the release of the latest radio ratings results yesterday revealed a slight rise in share for DMG’s new breakfast team at its Nova Sydney station, with Merrick Watts, Ricki-Lee Coulter and Scott Dooley recording a ratings rise from 6.5 per cent in the last survey to 7.6 percent.
