Brad Phillips gets new title as part of Corus management restructure

Corus Entertainment has announced an executive restructuring of its radio division, it says will reinforce the distinction between the company’s radio news teams and opinion-based talk programming.

Effective today, the internal moves are highlighted by a newly-created role that Brad Phillips, formerly Vice-President and Head of FM Radio, will step into as Senior Vice-President, Corus Audio. He’ll oversee all audio platforms for Corus including all FM and AM stations, as well as podcasting.

Ronnie Stanton takes on the role of Vice President, FM Radio Programming, and will oversee all FM programming. For the last two years, Stanton has held the title of Regional Program Director for Western Canada, as well as National Music Director.

Other changes see Jackie Moss add AM stations to her role as National Director of Promotions & Marketing.

Corus says radio news content will continue to be overseen by Ward Smith, Senior Vice President, Global News. Larry Gifford, National Director of Talk Radio, and Julie Mangat, National Manager – FM Digital, continue in their roles.

Chris Duncombe (aka Dunner) also retains his title as Director of Streaming & Podcasting.

Corus says there were no departures associated with the changes.
