Michael Carrington's Bio:

Director, Entertainment & Specialist division at the ABC, across Radio, Television, and Digital services. Michael Carrington, who was previously CEO of Zodiak Kids Studios, and former Chief Content Officer at Turner Broadcasting EMEA, believes there’s a responsibility that comes with public service broadcasting to ensure a diverse range of engaging programs, with an emphasis on content that makes an emotional impact on audiences. He has prided himself throughout his career on commissioning multi-genre content which inspires the audiences imagination and stimulates their curiosity – often underpinned by important themes like gender equality, healthy lifestyle, disability, or diversity – and wherever possible enabling audiences to have fun and laugh out loud.

 

Over a career spanning 25+ years, Carrington has developed a deep understanding of how to deliver great content for broad audiences. He has the practical experience of working in both public service broadcasting and commercial television, across programming and production.

 

Carrington is a strong believer in giving back. He has offered key advice at numerous speaking engagements like Children’s Media Conference, KidScreen Summit, MIPCOM, Cartoon Forum, and Screen Producers Association of Australia. He makes a point to participate in various charitable causes too such as Save the Children, Big Issue Foundation, EveryDayCounts (benefiting the Royal Marsden Hospital), and the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
