In this lengthy One on One podcast, I chat to Hamish Turner – Director of 9Now and Programming at Nine Entertainment Co. In a fascinating interview, Hamish shares with the audience his aspirations as a youth, his career development and what ultimately would become his current role overseeing programming for one of the largest media companies in Australia.

Hamish chats about:

  • High school
  • Interest in television
  • Roles before current position
  • Pressure in the current role
  • A typical day
  • Looking at the opposition
  • Programming based on own tastes
  • Own television enjoyment
  • Taking chances on untested formats
  • Failures
  • Overnight ratings
  • Total people v demos
  • 5 capital city ratings versus national ratings
  • Survey year
  • Different ratings perspectives from different networks
  • MAFS
  • Australian Ninja Warrior
  • Upcoming in 2022
  • Post tentpole shows
  • NBCU deal
  • Multi channels
  • Today
  • LA screenings
  • Expectations for the rest of 2022

Major Note: This podcast was recorded in June 2022, but for reasons outside my control or that of Nine, this interview has only been published now. Small parts of the interview may seem disjointed because Hamish is referring to upcoming shows that are now airing or have completed airing. 

A special thank you to Hamish Turner, Mitzy Luther and the wonderful team in programming and communications for organizing this interview.
