After 30 years in the radio industry, Brian Wybrow, the General Sales Manager of MIX 106.5 Sydney and The EDGE 96.1, has resigned as of the end of December.
He is going back to his home state of South Australia to set up The Australian Institute of Mathematics.
“I always promised myself that I would leave on a high. MIX 106.5 will set an all time retail ARN sales’ record this year and The EDGE 96.1 will set a station record … so it’s time for the radio rest home,” he said.
Starting in radio at CBN Sales Adelaide (now ARN Sales), he moved to Sydney to start the Agency Office of 3MP Melbourne (considered the best station in Australia at the time). He then moved to 2UE retail sales for a short time before being asked to return to ARN. For the past 20 years, he has worked as GSM of 2UW/MIX 106.5
“I have always been proud to work with the “Old and New” ARN. Good times are ahead for this network. In fact, I will be a client of ARN in Adelaide…how the tables have turned!”
Word at headquarters at North Ryde is that he will be sorely missed… “A great bloke, really funny, unbelievable bloke – we’re really going to miss him,” said more than one staff member.
