Australian Radio Network (ARN) has announced the appointment of Scott Muller as content director for Sydney’s WSFM, replacing the recently departed Charlie Fox.

Muller (pictured above) is a creative content and talent development specialist, and brings with him a wealth of radio experience gained from working in Australia and overseas.

During his career, Muller led Nova FM to number one in Sydney and delivered Capital Radio London its first significant growth in a decade.

He has also overseen group programming at the UK’s largest commercial network, and played a leading role in launching digital radio in the UK.

As director of MBOS Consulting, Muller has attracted clients from Australia’s major TV and radio networks, and has coached talent, directors, producers, senior executives, comedians, writers, and musicians.

Furthermore, Mike Hammond will replace radio veteran Ron E Sparks as WSFM’s morning announcer, and Steven Fitton will join the station as its afternoon announcer.

Hammond is an award-winning broadcaster with a career in radio and TV spanning more than two decades.

He has hosted a number of award-winning radio shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Newcastle, and nationally syndicated shows including The Rock 40 Countdown.

Jason Staveley will continue his role as music director and drive announcer on WSFM.

ARN national content director Duncan Campbell said: “I’m excited to be welcoming Scott, Mike and Steve to WSFM.

“They bring a wealth of experience, but also a fresh dynamic to the station, which is key to our strategy to re-energise ARN and position WSFM and the whole network for even greater success in 2018 and beyond.

“Scott has great plans to continue to grow on the success of WSFM, and I know the whole team will join me in welcoming him.”

Commenting on his appointment, Muller said: “I am really looking forward to joining ARN and WSFM.

Jonesy & Amanda are one of Sydney’s favourite breakfast shows, and along with Mike on mornings, Steve on afternoons, Jason on drive, and the whole WSFM team, I know it’s going to be a huge and successful 2018 for the station.”
