Cleary, who oversaw major productions including The Footy Show, Logie Awards, Hot Seat, & Carols by Candlelight during his 13 years at Nine, becomes Chief Content Officer at Crocmedia’s Southbank studios.
“I’m really looking forward to building Rainmaker from the ground up and exploring new formats across genres as diverse as sport to entertainment and lifestyle,” Cleary said.
CEO Craig Hutchison said, “Tim’s one of the best in the business so it’s a coup for us to secure his talents to lead this new business. We have high aspirations for what it will become and the partnerships that we will create with brands and broadcasters.”
