New leader for ASTRA Petra exits
Australian Subscription Television and Radio Association (ASTRA) is looking for a new leader after Petra Buchanan ruled out renewing her contract. Buchanan (pictured) has been the chief executive officer at ASTRA since 2009. Her contract expires in September and while she will not re-sign with ASTRA she has given an undertaking to remain in charge for up to six months to allow time for a suitable successor to be groomed for the position. ASTRA chairman Steve Bracks said Buchanan had done an outstanding job and pioneered major changes.
