96FM Perth’s Managing Director, Gary Roberts has received a Member of the Order of Australia medal as part of the Australia Day 2020 honours for his incredible contribution to the Australian radio industry.
During his career in commercial radio, Roberts was the first program director for 96FM, securing a record 45 ratings wins for the station. He returned to 96FM in April 2019 with decades of radio experience at a senior level, including having successfully managed all three of the major commercial networks.
