the host of Macquarie Media’s Money News program Ross Greenwood will exit the radio network at the year’s end.
His departure comes amid a string of changes at Macquarie Media following Nine’s takeover, however, it is unclear the circumstances surrounding Greenwood’s exit.
In a statement, Greenwood said it’s the “right time” to take a break from radio.
“I have just turned 60 and have been working non-stop for the past 40 years.
“This is a great time for me to stop and have a break from radio and then look at what my next steps are going forward. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with Macquarie Media, however eventually all things come to an end.”
Nine’s MD of radio Tom Malone said Greenwood was a “key” part of the industry.
“Over the past 10 years, Ross has made Money News a key part of our radio schedule and I want to thank him for everything he has done.
“We understand his decision and look forward to speaking with him again next year about the role he can play when he returns from his break.”
Greenwood remains in discussions with Nine’s director of news of current affairs, Darren Wick, on his television duties for 2020.
The Money News program will return next year on Macquarie’s radio network. A host for 2020 will be announced in the coming weeks.
