Ross Greenwood leaves Macquarie Media

Money News host Ross Greenwood will be leaving the Macquarie Media radio network in 2020 as he decides where to take his career next.

Greenwood is also the finance editor for the Nine Network, which now owns Macquarie Media and its radio assets.

Greenwood said it was the right time for him to take a break from the medium.

“I have just turned 60 and have been working non-stop for the past 40 years,” said Greenwood.

“This is a great time for me to stop and have a break from radio and then look at what my next steps are going forward. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with Macquarie Media, however eventually all things come to an end.”

Nine’s new managing director of radio, Tom Malone, said Greenwood had been an important part of the lineup for 10 years.

“Over the past 10 years, Ross has made Money News a key part of our radio schedule and I want to thank him for everything he has done. We understand his decision and look forward to speaking with him again next year about the role he can play when he returns from his break,” said Greenwood.

The Money News program will still return for 2020, with a new host to be announced in the coming weeks.

Greenwood is still in discussions with Nine’s director of news of current affairs, Darren Wick, on his television duties for 2020.

Macquarie Media has had a number of programming changes in the past few months. Denis Walters changed from the afternoon slot to Nights earlier this month, just after 3AW host John Burns announced he would be retiring in 2020. Commercial boss Mark Noakes departed, Sky News’ Greg Byrnes joined, and EP Michal Thompson left.

And Stephen Beers left, then came back.

Nine completed its takeover in November, shortly after Malone was promoted to manage its radio assets, replacing Adam Lang.
