Warburton Going...???

After Southern Cross Austereo's new chairman Peter Bush stepped in as acting boss last week, waving goodbye to Rhys Holleran, it is not particilarly surprising to hear the name of V8Supercars CEO James Warburton mentioned as alikely candidate to permanently helm the FM radio and regional TV group.

Austereo is hurting badly after letting star duo Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O defect to APN News and Media's Australian Radio Network, while Southern Cross earnings have been weighed down by its metro affiliate Ten, whose audience ratings have been in the toilet for several years.

Bush was previously chairman of Nine Entertainment Co. Warburton was Seven West Media's sales chief until he was controversially poached in 2012 by Lachlan Murdoch to run Ten. That didnt go so well...

At the V8's, Warburton has presided over a controversial switch in broadcast partners from Seven to Ten and Toxtel, imperiling major sponsorship dollars.

A hit of penicillin isnt going to fix SCA - it needs 14 pints of blood, 12 rounds of chemotherapy, a liver transplant and a frontal lobotomy.

Or, if Bush and Warburton are half lucky, a takeover offer and a massive pay day.


The way it reads, the timing is kinda like RIGHT NOW!!



If it proves true...

Gee he'd be really missed... he's added nothing with no real thought about the future of the category. Good luck to the next person who steps up, would the Black Wiggle be interested in a return?

Yep, Cocho would know how to fix things. Might come at the expense of the Shannons Nationals though.

From Archer Capital's perspective, Mr Warburton has brought on a financially lucrative broadcast deal, and additional broadcast partners to improve the income stream.

So in that regard, he seems to have been successful

It would be nice for a journalist away from the sport were to interview Mr Warburton about all the whys and wherefores of his role. Andrew Denton and his aces research team would be perfect for that role.

All we need now is the board to issue a statement saying he has their full support.

Please let it be true, he's done nothing but set the sport on a course of self-destruction.
He would probably do the same to Austereo. He seems good at bringing organisations to the brink.

Sources say Warburton is keen for the role and has already been offered the job. It’ll be a huge challenge for Warburton to lift the fortunes of the 2 Day FM radio network, which has been struggling ever since Kyle and Jackie O moved to KIIS FM.
Now this one is a even stronger than the speculation in the AFR....

I'd love for him to leave V8 Supercars one way or another as I've known he was going to ruin it the very second his appointment was announced.

How is it after being sacked from Channel 10 for his incompetence and pretty much destroying V8 Supercar this clown still gets offered big jobs ?
