Joy 94.9 announces new General Manager

Helen Henry, 24th June 2015

Yesterday evening, the JOY 94.9 Board announced the appointment of Amy Moon as the station's new General Manager.

Amy is an esteemed leader in the community radio sector, having worked here at the CBAA, and the Community Broadcasting Foundation. She also led revenue growth across several arts and community organisations, including 3MBS, Orchestra Victoria and Victorian Opera. As a passionate member of the LGBTIQ community, she is particularly well-placed to lead JOY into the future.

President Jed Gilbert, said:

"Since the resignation of our outgoing General Manager, the JOY 94.9 Board has worked tirelessly and run a large-scale and robust recruitment process. We wanted the best and brightest for our unique station and we're particularly pleased with Amy as our new General Manager."

The outgoing General Manager, Conrad Browne, said:

"I'm so pleased to hear that Amy will be the new General Manager. With her experience and knowledge of the sector, she will be a fantastic asset to the station. She's also a wonderful people-person, which will be of great value to this people powered organisation. I wish her all the best and I know with the support of the fantastic staff and amazing volunteers that JOY will thrive under her leadership and continue to be the loudest and proudest voice for our diverse community."

Amy Moon said:

"I’m delighted to have the opportunity to take on the position of General Manager at JOY and to share our pride with Melbourne and the world. Radio is a vital medium that connects people with their wider community and JOY has a truly unique place in the broader media landscape. When I first came to Melbourne almost a decade ago, JOY was a place I immediately felt connected. I really value the way JOY embraces and fosters inclusion, especially for those who are looking for a place to belong and don’t feel they are adequately represented elsewhere in the media. It will also be a very great privilege to work alongside people who are passionate and engaged by what they do. JOY’s team of hard working volunteers and staff share a deep commitment to the LGBTIQ community, not just in Melbourne, but also on a national and global scale as well. I can’t wait to join the JOY team!"

Amy will take up the role on 3 August 2015.
