AUCKLAND, Wednesday: Ad/media veteran Alistair Jamison has been named as ceo of the Radio Broadcasters Association, taking over from Jana Rangooni who has moved into a newly created independent RBA chair role (see accompanying story).

Jamison has 25 years’ experience in advertising and media, most recently as ceo of Publicis Media.

He said: “Kiwis love radio, with 80% of the population listening and engaging every week across a wide range of platforms.

“I’m committed to being a strong advocate for the members of the RBA, the industry, for advertisers and for audiences and I look forward to what will be a very new and different challenge.”

MediaWorks ceo (and outgoing RBA chair) Cam Wallace said: “Al will be a fantastic addition to New Zealand’s radio sector.

“I’m committed to being a strong advocate for the members of the RBA, the industry, for advertisers and for audiences.”

“He’ll bring fresh ideas and a new perspective to the industry and with his excellent network of contacts and exceptional knowledge of media and advertising, I’m confident he’ll help us further grow radio audiences and commercial opportunities for advertisers well into the future.”

RBA member (and NZME ceo) Michael Boggs said: “We welcome Al to the new role.

“Having dedicated Chair and CEO roles looking respectively at the regulatory activity and revenue opportunities for radio will ensure RBA members are in a strong position to take advantage of the many opportunities that lie ahead.”

Incoming independent chair Jana Rangooni said: “I am excited to have this opportunity to move to the role for the RBA.

“Over the years I have seen the value of good governance in all organisations and I am confident the independent perspective I am able to bring will be valuable to the RBA.”
