I wasn’t sure where to put this, but what the hell is going on over there? In the media over here hasn’t been this pathetic (and that’s saying something!)

Ridiculous, even by The West’s standards under De Ceglie.

SevenWest clearly not happy with the poll that they commissioned last week indicating that the majority (71%) didn’t agree with their editorial stance on the border deferral.

This really seems like something like Sky News or Fox News would do be honest… The West really has gotten downhill within the past few years :confused:

Ex Daily Telegraph deputy editor - as soon as he started with The West has aggressively taken it a more tabloid path to the extent people so often mistake it for a Murdoch rag.

Surely this is just satire? What a ridiculous point of view taken by this editor.

Seven announces first David Leckie Seven Scholarship Program recipient

Madeline-McKeown-Skye-Leckie-James-Warburton

Seven West Media is delighted to announce that Madeline McKeown is the recipient of the inaugural David Leckie Seven Scholarship Program.

The annual program was established in September 2021 in memory of former Seven West Media Chief Executive Officer, the late David Leckie.

It was set up in conjunction with Skye Leckie and David and Skye’s sons Harry and Ben, and offers a 12-month scholarship at Seven West Media for a junior graduate with a passion for sales, programming or news.

The applications were judged by Skye, Harry and Ben Leckie and senior Seven West Media executives.

Skye, Harry and Ben Leckie said: “Harry, Ben and I were thrilled to be involved in the selection of the recipient of David’s inaugural scholarship.

“The candidates were outstanding, however, there can only be one recipient. Madeline is a very accomplished young person and we felt that she will really excel in her experience at Seven. The scholarship will cover all facets of a highly successful business and Seven is a fantastic place to work and to learn.

“David’s first love in his life was always TV. He was so passionate about all aspects of it. Davo was a tough taskmaster, from the old school, and if you didn’t ‘stack up’, you knew about it! That made people strive to achieve and improve,” they said.

“We felt in our discussions with Madeline that David would be very pleased to welcome her to his team. We wish her all the best and encourage her to take advantage of everything that is offered by Seven.

“We are so grateful for this legacy to honour David’s life and we look forward to watching Madeline’s success – and we will never forget David’s mantra about his competitors: ‘When they zig, you zag!’.”

Seven West Media Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, James Warburton, said:
“David was a wonderful mentor and colleague to many of us at Seven and the David Leckie Seven Scholarship Program is a fitting tribute to his legacy and memory.

“Madeline is smart, motivated and keen to learn and grow in the media industry. I know David would have been very impressed by her and would have been a great mentor and support. Like everyone at Seven, I’m very pleased to welcome Madeline and I look forward to seeing her career with us flourish.”

Seven announces senior sales leadership appointments

Seven West Media today announced key new senior sales leadership appointments as part of its ongoing strategy to deliver unrivalled national total video trading for commercial partners and brands.

Reporting to Seven West Media Chief Revenue Officer, Kurt Burnette, the new appointments follow the recent acquisition of Prime Media Group, which has created Australia’s first wholly-owned national television and digital group.

Natalie Harvey, previously Network Director of Sales, has been appointed National Sales Director, responsible for leading the network’s convergence and growth across capital city, regional and BVOD markets.

Nicole Bence, previously Network Digital Sales Director, takes up the new position of National Sales Director of Digital, responsible for driving a range of advanced digital advertising initiatives and overseeing Seven’s commercial digital, data, innovation and programmatic offerings.

Dave Walker joins Seven from Prime as Director of National Trading and Revenue Operations. With over 30 years of industry experience in Australia and New Zealand, Mr Walker brings to Seven a wealth of knowledge across sales leadership, television trading, system integration and media agency strategy planning and buying.

Greg Gabel, previously Sales Director at 7Queensland, takes on the new role of National Regional Sales Director of Local Markets, responsible for overseeing sales in all regional markets and driving new products and processes for local teams across broadcast and digital. His appointment brings together regional sales areas under one person for the first time.

In Western Australia, the local regional sales team will work closely with the Perth capital city sales team and report into Chief Executive Officer, Seven West Media WA, Maryna Fewster, and Seven Perth Sales Director, Damian Hampson.

Seven is the most watched free-to-air broadcaster across all screens and our acquisition of Prime provides our commercial partners and brands with an unmatched total video audience proposition.

Seven can now reach more than 90% of Australia’s population each month as one integrated company, giving advertisers and agencies easy and seamless access to metro and regional markets. It’s a game-changing move for our customers, our people and our company, meaning quite simply we are even better together.

Seven’s national leadership team and new sales structure is designed to support Seven’s transformation and deliver a brilliant customer experience, making it easier, faster and more effective for brands to reach their desired audience across all of Australia, including in the capital cities, regional Australia and digitally on 7plus.

Our advertising and trading solutions will be further enhanced as we accelerate towards a dynamic and converged audience trading model.
