Take 2 Media, the publisher of trade titles The Music Network and Radio Today, has announced a number of staffing changes after a year of record audience growth.
Take 2 Media’s Publisher Jake Challenor has stepped down from his role as Content Director to launch a PR/communications consultancy for music, media and technology businesses.
Editor Vivienne Kelly has been promoted to Content Director after joining the business last September from Mumbrella. Since joining, Kelly has overseen record audience growth for the Take 2 Media B2B network.
In the 2021 financial year Take 2 Media delivered in excess of 5.2 million page views, up over 28 per cent on the previous period from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.
In her new role, Kelly is responsible for overseeing all editorial and content across Take 2 Media’s digital channels, including all daily and weekly email newsletters.
Kelly has launched two newsletters this year:
- Podcasting Today, sent to Radio Today subscribers each Monday; and,
- TMN Live, sent to The Music Network subscribers each Friday.
Challenor will continue to lead sponsorships for all Take 2 Media’s awards programs, including an expanded music business awards – the 2021 TMN Tinnies – to be held in September.
Take 2 Media’s Campaign Manager Brian Lawlor has also been promoted to Partnerships Director. He joined the business in 2020 from Jaden Digital, where he was Agency Director.
Lawlor is responsible for commercial partnerships and awards programs across The Music Network and Radio Today, including the 30 Under 30 Awards across both titles.
Lawlor was behind the hugely successful launch of the 2021 Radio Today Podcast Awards with LiSTNR this year, and is currently preparing two new awards initiatives to be unveiled soon.
Will Brewster is also joining the editorial team as a reporter for The Music Network and Radio Today. He joins the business from Furst Media, where he was the digital editor of Australia’s leading musical instrument and audio technology publication, Mixdown Magazine.
