Clayton has been with Positive Media for 17 years in a number of key roles, including Content Director, Chief Operating Officer, and most recently Group Transformation Manager, as well as host of In Conversation with Clayton. The Board will begin the recruitment process for the new CEO over the coming months.


Please continue to pray for the staff of Tonga Christian Radio (93.1) and all on the Tongan islands affected by the massive volcano eruptions and tsunami over the weekend. one death has now been confirmed (of a British woman swept away by the waves) and others are still reported missing. Although we still haven’t received any news from Tonga Christian Radio GM Willy Florian, we’re believing in faith that they are well. However, clean water and other essential food items will be in short supply as the ash-fall has contaminated water catchments and local crops.
