Nine makes Macquarie Media head of commercial redundant

By Mariam Cheik-Hussein | 28 November 2019

Macquarie Media’s head of commercial Mark Noakes has been made redundant by Nine.

The media conglomerate says the role was cut as it aligns the two business’ sales teams following the acquisition.

Noakes has been with the radio network since 2002.

“He has made a significant contribution to the business over many years at 2GB and then in the wider radio network as we came together as one business across 2GB/3AW/4BC/6PR,” Tom Malone, head of radio at Nine, says.

“I want to take this opportunity to take Mark for everything he has contributed to Macquarie.”

Since the acquisition, the radio’s CEO role, filled by Adam Lang, has been made redundant and its long-time national executive producer Michael Thompson has departed.

Last week Nine appointed former Sky News national editor Greg Byrnes as its head of content.
