Tom Malone has been appointed managing director – radio, ahead of Nine taking over operational control of Macquarie Media on November 8.

The appointment follows the redundancy of Macquarie Media CEO Adam Lang back in mid-October.

For the past four years Malone has served as Nine’s director of sport, overseeing the growth of the Wide World of Sports brand and its relationships with major sporting codes, including leading Nine’s switch from cricket to tennis in 2018.

“Tom has a stellar track record as both a content creator and a media executive. For him this is a return to his roots in radio and I am confident he is the right person to lead Nine’s radio division,” said Hugh Marks, CEO of Nine.

“He brings an important skillset as we move forward and look for the opportunities that are created by having powerful radio brands like 2GB, 3AW, 4BC and 6PR within the Nine family.”

Malone is a former executive producer of 60 Minutes and the Today Show. He began his career at Radio 2UE as a cadet in the newsroom, before spending two years as a federal political reporter and several years producing breakfast radio.

“I’m excited to be returning to radio,” Malone said. “2GB, 3AW, 4BC and 6PR are all powerful voices in their respective cities with deep connections to their communities, and we will seek to expand on that.

“The move to full ownership of Macquarie opens up real opportunities to build on that foundation and creates new ones to engage with listeners in each state.”

While Malone will have oversight of the radio division, Nine also confirmed that Macquarie’s newsrooms would fall under Darren Wick, Nine’s Director of News and Current Affairs.

In each market, Malone will work closely with Nine’s local managing directors to seek more opportunities for growth and integration across the wider Nine business.
