SBS’s Matt Campbell moves to Shine

Matt Campbell, SBS’s director of Television and Online Content will leave the network to be Managing Director of Shine Australia and New Zealand.

In a statement, SBS Managing Director Michael Ebeid said, “I’m disappointed to see Matt leave SBS after seven years and so much success but with his enviable track record of producing and acquiring great content for SBS, it’s not surprising a great offer to join Shine came his way.”

Campbell leaves SBS with recent successes in East West 101, First Australians, Immigration Nation as well as the successful documentary series and SBS’s highest rating program this year, Go Back To Where You Came From. He also picked up local productions Wilfred and Rockwiz, and international programs Mythbusters and Top Gear.

“It’s bittersweet to be leaving SBS at such an exciting time for the network with Michael’s arrival and fantastic, innovative projects in the pipeline but the opportunity to join Shine Australia is a terrific opportunity,” said Campbell.

Campbell joined SBS in 2004 as Head of Programming and became Director of Television and Online Content in 2006.

His move follows the new appointment of Shine’s Mark and Carl Fennessy as President of Shine Network (international) and CEO of Shine USA respectively, announced last month.

Shine produce Junior Masterchef, the upcoming The Renovators and The Biggest Loser.
