Nominees in the Most Popular Station Manager category at this year’s Australian Commercial Radio Awards have been announced. The new category, in its first year, has received a very strong response with staff nominating their bosses from around the nation.
“Some of the responses about what constitutes a good station manager have ranged from the bizarre: “He’s a sheister, scammer and rips the whole world off, but is a pretty good boss (as long as he is not off the smokes!) to the more expected: “The level of respect and admiration her staff have for her is quite extraordinary.”
