RTRFM begins hunt for new General Manager
RTRFM’s General Manager Jason Cleary has announced that he will wrap up at the station before the end of 2015, meaning the upcoming Boston Boogie will be one of his last on the dancefloor as their fearless leader.
The Mount Lawley-based community broadcaster will soon begin searching for a new General Manager to take RTRFM to the next level of excellence in community broadcasting.
“Cleary’s decision to move on from his post was a difficult decision, “not made lightly”. But ultimately his resignation is a positive step both personally and professionally; one that will enable him to focus on his young family and take up an exciting business opportunity. Of his departure, Cleary says, “It has been an immense pleasure and privilege to lead RTRFM, a place that first made me aware of what music really should sound like and a place that has been an oasis for a music junkie like myself. “There are many challenges facing radio in the future, but I believe RTRFM is well placed to weather whatever is thrown at it, due to the dedication and talents of all the people involved. I will certainly still be involved in the station wherever I can. This has been an extremely difficult decision,but I believe the right one at this time. I thank everyone who has been part of this journey with me.”
Chair of RTRFM’s Board of Directors, Rewi Lyall, adds, “Jason has made some really fantastic advances for the station, and will leave knowing that we are a stable, sustainable community organisation. “The board of RTRFM will be sad to see him leave the role, as, I’m sure, will all members. On behalf of the members of RTRFM I thank Jason for his service to our beloved radio station and wish him every success in his new business.”
