Just for a moment, she has to think about it, but she’s pretty sure she owns 55 radio stations across Australia.
55 stations: which makes Janet Cameron’s company Grant Broadcasters the largest family owned network of radio stations in the country. Only Southern Cross Austereo has more.
Generally media shy, Janet agreed to an extended interview with Peter Saxon – the first time she has ever spoken at such length about her early life and her love for regional Australia and, of course, regional radio.
Janet Cameron reveals how she built her empire, her philosophy on buying radio assets as handed down by her father, as well as her regrets over some of the properties she had sold over the years. Plus how, as a woman, she succeeded in the mans’ world of radio and the succession plan for the family business. And despite having lived a wonderfully fulfilling life, the tragedies that remain with her to this day.
Join Peter Saxon tomorrow as we post Part One of his profile of this remarkable woman, Janet Cameron, on radioinfo.
