Legendary broadcaster David Hill was this week presented with a Lifetime Achievement award at the New York Festival.

Hill, who has an extensive history at FOX Sports (US), 21st Century Fox, National Geographic Channels, Nine Network, ABC, American Idol and the 88th Academy Awards said, “I’m thrilled that New York Festivals Television & Film Awards has elected to honour me its 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award, especially when you look at the accomplished careers of those who have received this distinction before me, particularly Geoff Mason, Ken Aagaard and Dave Mazza – not a bad bunch.

“Television is truly a collaborative effort, and from Australia, to the U.K., and finally the U.S., I’ve had the good fortune of working with hundreds of amazingly talented people who joined me in taking risks and forsaking tradition, and I share this award with each and every one of them.”
