Seven names Sarah Stinson as The Morning Show’s new EP

Seven has appointed veteran current affairs producer Sarah Stinson as executive producer of The Morning Show.

Stinson is currently chief of staff on Today Tonight, which she first joined as a producer in 2005. Before that she was producer on Nine’s A Current Affair from 2000 to 2005, having first joined the network as a production assistant in 1998.

Her appointment comes after The Morning Show’s executive producer Michael Pell stepped up to EP of Sunrise ahead of Adam Boland’s departure next month.  

The morning show is hosted by Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies.

Stinson said:

“Working with Larry and Kylie, alongside a brilliant creative team, on a programme I love is a dream come true,” she said. “The Morning Show has been a spectacular success and is the market leader in its slot. I’m keen to make my contribution to a winning formula.”

Seven’s director of news and public affairs Peter Meakin said: “She has done a wonderful job on Today Tonight and has proved herself a team player. This is an appropriate reward for her expertise and hard work.”

Yesterday saw The Morning Show rate an average metro audience of 148,000 according to preliminary overnight metro ratings from OzTam.This was ahead of an average of 113,000 for Kerri-Anne Kennerley on Nine and 84,000 for Ten’s The Circle.
