Execs leave Nine Network

New ownership spurs change

The first casualties of the ownership change at Australia’s Nine Network have begun to emerge.

Creative services director Mia Freedman will ankle after just a year in the job. Freedman was appointed by former Nine topper Eddie McGuire, who also re-cently stepped down.

Freedman will not be replaced; her role will be absorbed by programming topper Michael Healy.

One of the shows she championed, daytime femme-skewed yakker “The Catch Up,” has been axed.

Nine parent PBL Media is owned by Blighty’s CVC Capital.
