Network Ten has been on a recruiting spree for its news division, hiring two former colleagues in senior roles.

Ross Dagan (pictured above) returns to Ten in the new role of network director of news content, effective in early May.

He will be responsible for Ten’s news content and operations across all distribution platforms, including TEN Eyewitness News First at Five and news content on Ten Daily, the new website that will launch this year.

Dagan is currently executive producer for news at Aljazeera English, based in Qatar.

His previous have included director of news for Brisbane and Seven Queensland at the Seven Network, head of news and current affairs at TVNZ, and director of news for Sydney and Brisbane at Ten.

Beverley McGarvey, chief content officer at Ten, said: “The appointment of Ross is the next step in the evolution of our news service, and I am very pleased that someone with his Australian and global experience has agreed to join Network Ten.

“Network Ten has a very proud heritage in News, while CBS is one of the leading news organisations in the world. That combination underpins our commitment to building our news service.

“With more than 20 years’ experience in news, Ross has unique credentials, a proven track record and a reputation for leading change.

“He is the ideal person to lead and expand our news division.”

Commenting on his appointment, Dagan said: “Network Ten’s people are its greatest assets, many of whom I have had the privilege of working alongside before.

“I am looking forward to returning home to help them build on the strengths of Ten news across all platforms.

“The network is extraordinarily well-placed to look to the future of news and how we produce and deliver news, information and conversations that are most importantly credible, but also contemporary and engaging.”

Ten has also announced the appointment of Andrew McKinlay as the network’s sport editor, effective in early April.

McKinlay was previously the editorial manager and chief of production at Fox Sports, where he has been since December 2011.

Before Fox Sports, Mr McKinlay worked at Ten as its national sports editor.

McGarvey said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Andrew back to Network Ten and that he has agreed to take on such a key role in our news division.

“Local, national and international sport is a critically important part of our news coverage, and we look forward to Andrew leading our already strong sport news department.”

Commenting on his appointment, McKinlay said: “It’s been a wonderful eight-year ride at Fox Sports, but these are exciting times to be joining Ten, with new ownership reinforcing the network’s image as a top-gun player in news and sport.

“I look forward to leading a team of news breakers in all sports, especially cricket, AFL, NRL, rugby and Supercars.”
