Most Popular Commercial Station Manager nominees

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.”

The list is a who’s-who of well respected radio managers:
