Great question and welcome to TT Media, I'm Toni Tenaglia.
Over the years the media industry has demonstrated time and time again to me that it's forever changing, forever dynamic & forever at full pace!
In recent times I've witnessed the Australian Radio Industry shrink, leaving limited opportunities for stations to provide their teams with on-air & music training programs.
This lack of investment in training & development has manifested in recent years; resulting in major metro markets struggling to find well polished announcers to fill weekend shifts.
Whilst there are a lot of talented announcers in the industry, many just haven’t matched up to the standard expected for shifts in prime markets.
I could see there was a need to bridge the gap between the regional /country markets and the metro markets so in 2016 I established TT Media with a goal to develop our next generation of industry giants.
I've been fortunate enough to earn a living doing what I love for many years. I've got a passion for developing on air talent and I believe everyone deserves a shot at living their dream!
