Junkee Media appoints Buzzfeed’s Nick Arnold as video news director

Junkee Media has appointed ex-Buzzfeed video producer Nick Arnold to the newly-created role of video news director.

Arnold was one of the many journalists who lost their jobs as part of Buzzfeed’s major round of redundancies in February.

Arnold has a background in both journalism and TV, having worked on shows including Love Island, Bear Grylls Survival School, Geordie Shore and Big Brother in the UK.

He was also a journalist and features writer at BBC Three, before making the move to Sydney for the Buzzfeed role.

“Nick has the rare combination of news experience from BBC Three and social experience from BuzzFeed that both combine in the space where Junkee lives,” said Tim Duggan, Junkee Media’s publisher. “We’re focusing heavily on video in 2019, and Nick will be leading that charge and building a great team around him.”

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the Junkee Media team,” said Arnold. “What they have achieved to date is admirable, and the opportunity to be part of a team that wants to champion both video and journalism in the future fills me with not just excitement, but also optimism.”
