The radio space is forever evolving, and it is pivotal for Primedia to always have a clear-cut picture of the direction the media industry is taking. This also speaks to the mercurial behaviour of our consumers and listeners, the business must know how to best service them to keep them engaged and informed.

Primedia Broadcasting Group CEO, Jonathan Procter says, “The appointment of Storie continues to strengthen our team to achieve the goals we have set for the company. With his flair as a media strategist and extensive knowledge in data analytics, Storie is going to collaborate and service the commercial organisation with business intelligence solutions seamlessly.”

Storie brings in a multidisciplinary set of skills that will enable data driven decision making in the organisation for internal and external intelligence. He is a former head of media intelligence (SA & SSA) at DStv Media Sales, Multichoice, with the role covering strategy, insight, and planning. Previously, he was on the agency side as group managing director of Vizeum South Africa. So, he brings a wealth of both depth and breadth of media knowledge.

Kelvin Storie comments, “I’m energised, excited, and enthralled to be embarking on this new journey with Primedia as we delve deeper into familiar waters as well as enter uncharted territory. Data and storytelling are the fabric of this amazing media industry we find ourselves in. I’m a firm believer in keeping strategies simple but executing them brilliantly.”
