After 50+ years in radio, Peter Harvie retires from SCA

Radio Hall of Fame inductee Peter Harvie started his career as a radio writer at Clemenger in 1966.

Today SCA announced his retirement from the board of Southern Cross Austereo to the ASX.

In between, Mr Harvie worked his way up through the ranks of Clemenger, Melbourne to become Managing Director of a restructured Clemenger Harvie in 1974.

In 1993, Mr Harvie left the advertising agency to become MD of the Triple M Network and in 2001 became the Executive Chairman of Austereo Group Ltd. 10 years later, he led the merger of Austereo with Southern Cross Broadcasting to become the diverse media company, Southern Cross Austereo.

Mr Harvie was inducted into the Commercial Radio Hall of Fame in 2014.

SCA Chairman Peter Bush said:  “SCA has benefited greatly from Peter’s 50 years experience in the Advertising, marketing and media industries. He has been an informed and forthright contributor to board deliberations. Everyone wishes him well for his future endeavours.”

Mr Bush indicated that the board intended to appoint a new non-executive director in due course.
