Seven has appointed a new Programmer for its daytime schedules, in Roosje Scott.
Scott, who joined the network in 2001, has previously been Program Services Manager and has overseen 7HD schedules.
The daytime war, which is fiercely prized by TEN, has seen the addition of The View and Ellen on Nine as a way of building a consistent demographic. Susie has also been dropped from WIN Television in Adelaide and Perth daytime schedules.
Seven’s current daytime schedule from 6am to 6pm includes Sunrise, The Morning Show, movies, plus repeats of Desperate Housewives, Moonlighting, some kids’ TV, News, Deal or No Deal -and even MASH. Can we look forward to the end of the 1980’s comedy? Sure it’s a classic show, but it’s nearly 2009.
A little sprucing up would be good for competition.
Channel Seven today announced the appointment of Roosje Scott to the position of Daytime Programmer. Roosje takes over the management of Seven’s daytime on-air schedule after successfully managing Seven’s Programming Services and Seven HD schedules.
Channel Seven values its strong daytime schedule, said Director of Programming and Production Tim Worner;
“Roosje will further develop our focus on daytime as we look towards 2009. A strong daytime line-up plays an important role in the success of our entire schedule and we look forward to building our daytime audience share in the coming year.”
Roosje has been a strong contributor to Seven’s programming department since she joined the team in 2001 and in 2004, was appointed to the role of Program Services Manager.
“Roosje was the perfect choice for this new role. Roosje is another example of a Seven person developing within the company and being rewarded for their valuable work,” Mr Worner said.
