Management moves at Kagiso Media’s Radio division
Kagiso Media’s radio division has announced some personnel changes which it says will enable the division and its stations to deliver on its growth ambitions in the coming year.
Kevin Fine, the current Jacaranda FM GM, will be leaving the station after eight years at the helm to start a new business within the radio division, becoming founding managing director of Expedite. This will aim “to create new value for clients, the stations, and stakeholders by innovatively leveraging radio’s resources and inventory” and more details will be made available when it is formally launched in September 2019.
Charis Coleman will take up a new position of market engagement manager across East Coast Radio and Jacaranda FM. “Charis will still be a driving force in our online content strategy, but she is now going to have a very specific focus on gathering as much data out of our audience interactions as possible, for the benefit of our programming and marketing teams, and also for our customers,” says Nick Grubb, Kagiso Media radio chief executive.
Jacaranda FM’s finance manager, Vuyani Dombo, has been promoted to head of finance: radio, and will oversee the radio division finance teams, effective 1 September.
Both of Kagiso Media’s key stations have had vacancies in the marketing manager positions, and the recent changes have now included the recent promotions of Leith Smith at Jacaranda FM and Tanya Davis at ECR. Both were acting in the position in the last financial year.
The Jacaranda FM GM position will be advertised in due course.
