Ace Radio makes some cuts as COVID19 cuts deep into revenue

Like most regional broadcasters, Ace Radio is struggling with the effects of COVID-19.
With direct revenue down anywhere from 40%-50%, the management team has had to make some tough decisions on staffing levels with some positions in the sales team, admin and production being made redundant.
CEO, Mark Taylor, told radioinfo, “Being a family orientated network always makes these decisions difficult, but we have tried where possible to keep as many people employed as possible.
“The AM and FM breakfast shows, The Morning Rush with Sean & Kate and The Morning Crew with Gabi & Dan, will be fully networked in the next 3 – 6 weeks, with the remaining two stations brought into line. Current breakfast shows hosts who are displaced have been offered other daytime programs at a local level.”
Ace will also keep their pool of journalists at all their stations in order to continue providing local news updates.
