Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) has named Dave Cameron as chief content officer, following a global search for the role.

Cameron has been with the network for more than 25 years and is currently its Melbourne general manager.

In his new role, Cameron will oversee content across 78 FM stations, 10 DAB+ radio stations, extended digital and associated on-demand content.

“During our extensive candidate selection process for this important role, we interviewed a number of quality candidates, searching for the right person to lead and develop our audio content needs,” says SCA CEO Grant Blackley.

“I couldn’t be more delighted that we have found that person within our own ranks in Dave.”

Cameron’s appointment finalises a list of new additions to the executive team, including Nikkie Clarkson as CMO and Annaliese van Riet as chief people and culture officer.

“There’s no better place to lead an already highly experienced and creative content team than SCA,” Cameron says.

“In the digital age, content is critical to our success and as the audio landscape continues to expand and diversify into new platforms, we will focus on innovation and creative content excellence to drive that growth and stamp our success.”
