Mumbrellacast: Radio ratings, Isentia’s cyber struggles and PHD CEO Mark Jarrett

This week it’s everything radio as the team look at the results from GfK radio ratings survey seven.

In Melbourne, Nine Radio’s 3AW blew critics away with another massive gain, while Sydney saw Kiis FM legends Kyle and Jackie O retain their FM crown. What should the industry expect from survey eight?

Media monitoring business Isentia had a rough week, dealing with fall out of a cyber security attack at its business Mediaportal. With rival businesses snapping at its heels and unhappy investors to appease, what does the future look like for Isentia? The team speculate over how much damage the loss will do to the business and whether it can recover when it still isn’t able to provide clear guidance.

And deputy managing editor Brittney Rigby sits down with PHD CEO Mark Jarrett. He stepped into the top position at the end of 2019, ahead of a year nobody could predict. How does one settle into their first CEO position when there’s a global pandemic raging and wreaking havoc across the media industry? And what impact has remote working had on PHD?
