Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) chief creative officer Guy Dobson will depart from his role at the radio network, effective immediately.

Following the acquisition of the Austereo Group in 2011, Dobson took on the role of head of metro operations for three years after leading the Austereo business as CEO.

He then stepped into the creative officer role and was responsible for overseeing and planning the strategic and creative direction of all areas of content – FM, digital radio and all digital media.

“I’m calling time on the SCA phase of my career. It’s a wonderful company with an amazing leadership team, great radio people and is set up well for a big year ahead," Dobson said.

"After ten years in some high-level roles, I feel it’s time to move on and chase down other adventures and opportunities. To everyone who’s helped shaped my career at SCA I thank you wholeheartedly."

SCA CEO Grant Blackley added: “Guy has had a long and illustrious career at SCA starting in radio as announcer and working in a number of key leadership roles.

"He leaves SCA in a strong position for future growth and we thank him for his enormous contribution and the development and growth of our Triple M and Hit Networks.”

The network did not announce a replacement for Dobson, stating that it "believes this provides SCA a unique opportunity to review the existing structure and importantly the skills and experience for our future needs."

Both Blackley and Dobson weighed in on the future of radio, sharing their predictions for the medium in 2019.
