It’s truly an exciting time for our commercial offering and I’m looking forward to working with our audio sales teams to deliver results for our advertising partners.”
Meanwhile, Salmon said of her time with the radio network: “I’ve had the most incredible and rewarding time during my eight years at SCA. Every role, project, or committee I’ve been fortunate to be a part of, has provided me not only growth and development, but an opportunity to work with some of the most talented people in the media industry.
“I’ve truly had the most fun of my career here at SCA. So, whilst it will be sad to say goodbye, the opportunity to take on another big career challenge is too great a drawcard and was the driving force behind my decision. Thanks to all ‘SCAers’ for making my time here so memorable.”
Salmon leaves SCA on 15 December and Minto starts in the new role on 11 December 2023.
