SCA has announced two senior digital audio appointments following the launch of LiSTNR last week.
Grant Tothill becomes general manager, Digital Audio.
Tothill, currently head of SCA Podcasting, will take on the additional role, responsible for bringing together all functional areas of the business to ensure SCA delivers on its Digital Audio ambitions particularly in relation to LiSTNR.
As LiSTNR will be the new home of SCA’s podcast content, the PodcastOne Australia team will now be referred to as LiSTNR Podcasts. Tothill will continue to oversee this and lead the team.
Chris Johnson becomes head of digital and Innovation.
This is a newly created role.
Johnson will continue to oversee the Digital Leadership Team and manage the roadmap of SCA’s core digital products including LiSTNR.
He will also now be responsible for establishing and managing SCA’s local and international digital partnerships. He will drive internal digital knowledge, collaboration and innovation to ensure SCA stays ahead of emerging trends and opportunities in the digital audio space.
“The consumption of digital audio in Australia is growing rapidly and presents an exciting opportunity for SCA to capitalise on this emerging market and LiSTNR will be our new ‘home’ for SCA’s digital audio content,” says SCA chief operating officer John Kelly.
“Grant’s proven success in leading PodcastOne Australia from strength to strength gives me the absolute confidence that he will be exceptional in this new and enhanced role.
“We are very fortunate to have someone such as Chris with his level of skill and expertise in digital and we know that he will continue to excel in his new role.”
LiSTNR is a curated and personalised, free app offering radio, podcasts, music, and news, creating a new audio destination.
