Your Money, Australia’s new 24-hour business, personal finance and luxury lifestyle channel, has today announced its senior executive team and the appointment of business journalist, Chris Kohler.
The joint venture launching later this year between Nine and Australian News Channel (ANC) will see Chris Kohler join Sky News Business journalists including Brooke Corte and Ticky Fullerton.
Currently national business editor at Domain, Kohler has previously been a business reporter for The Australian and Business Spectator.
Your Money CEO Kylie Merritt said, “Chris has a unique ability to cut through the jargon and present complex finance stories in an entertaining and engaging way.
“He brings great insights from his time at News Corp and Domain to complement the existing team.”
Your Money CEO Kylie Merritt also confirmed the joint venture has made its first key sales hire, appointing Simon Hopkins as commercial director.
Hopkins has held many senior media sales roles including founder of content consultancy ContentShed, commercial and revenue director of Brand New Media and general manager of national sales and marketing for Fairfax Regional Media.
Also joining the management team at Your Money is Glen Caro as program director and Nadine Blayney as news director.
Caro joins from SBS, where he was executive producer of Insight.
He has previously held roles at Nine including at the Today Show and Weekend Today.
Glen will oversee a new suite of evening programs encompassing wealth, real-estate, luxury lifestyle and small business.
Blayney joins Your Money from Sky News Business where she was most recently channel manager, having also been an anchor and executive producer across programs.
Nadine brings extensive business and television journalism experience and will be responsible for the news output of Your Money.
The three new executives join Kylie Merritt and David Ash, previously announced as head of digital.
“Since unveiling the new joint venture in late June we have moved quickly to bring together a strong team of commercial and editorial executives ahead of the channel launch later this year,” said Merritt.
“The team is well placed to ensure Your Money provides a powerful platform for audiences and advertisers alike across television and multiple digital channels.”
Further announcements will be made regarding the launch date and program line-up on Your Money.
