Nine has appointed Sam Brennan as sports sales director.
Brennan, a former group business manager at Nine’s rival Seven, will relocate from Melbourne, where he was Melbourne sales manager for Nine’s Network Sport, to take up the position.
Nine’s group sales and marketing director Peter Wiltshire said: “We are delighted to welcome Sam as the newest member of the senior leadership team at Nine Sales. Sport is an incredibly important portfolio for Nine and we look forward to Sam leading us in this crucial area.”
Brennan will report to Nine’s director of sales Michael Stephenson.
Stephenson said: “Wide World of Sports has never been in better shape. We have the biggest sporting events delivering massive audiences week in, week out across the entire year. I’ve grown up watching Wide World of Sports and the opportunity to lead this outstanding sport sales team is a huge opportunity that I can’t wait to take up.”
