Ronnie Stanton heading south?

Postby Tom Jeffries » Wed Nov 02, 2016 12:50 pm

Is it true that Aussie Ronnie Stanton, is heading to America, and is no longer the chief at The Black Tower?

What impact will this have on CKNW?

When I first read Tom's report, I thought that Ronnie was headed for Antarctica.

As well as being South of Australia, Ronnie's homeland, I obviously have Antarctica on the brain after the recent announcement of the world's largest marine protected area there.

None. Ronnie was in charge of the music stations. Talk stations fall under the Global News people. Troy Reeb I think.

From this morning's Broadcast Dialogue:
Ronnie Stanton is leaving his role as VP of radio programming for Corus Radio at month’s end. He’s on his way to the U.S. to build his radio consulting business, and adds Corus as his exclusive Canadian client. Dustin Collins, program director for Vancouver’s Rock 101, will add programming duties for CFOX, effective Nov. 25.
