Nine has appointed Murray Shaw as its new Head of Rugby, following its broadcast deal with Rugby Australia.
He has most recently been Executive Producer at the Australian Institute Of Sport, but held roles at FOX Sport, NEP Australia, Victoria Racing Club and SKY News.
Nine’s Director of Sport, Brent Williams said, “Murray is an extremely experienced television producer having spent the last 20 years of his career specifically focusing on sport and live sports productions.
“His time with both FOX Sports and SKY News has seen him involved in some of the biggest sporting events in the world including Olympic Games, Cricket World Cups, Rugby World Cups, Football World Cups and Socceroos matches both here in Australia and around the world.
“He is a passionate sports fan in general but has a love for the Waratahs, Roosters and the Sydney Swans …but we won’t hold that against him.
“His experience in sports broadcasting, stakeholder relationships and management of talent and production teams made him the ideal choice.”
