EXCLUSIVE | No MKR for 2022, says Seven chief programming officer ANGUS ROSS
In exclusive interview, Seven’s Programming Director Angus Ross reveals his plans for 2022 and beyond
Angus ross has been Programming Director for Seven Network since 2012. He carries the weight of ordering and acquiring all entertainment content on the Seven and 7plus channels.
While we all have a bit of a programmer in us, Angus is ultimately responsible for what we watch and how we watch it, whether the content is available for linear broadcast or on the streaming service, 7plus .
Rumors have swirled that Rules of my kitchen could make a comeback as early as 2022. In a new interview I recorded with Angus for the Blackbox TV the Angus podcast reveals:
“We would like to revisit the format at some point, but at the moment it seems way too early,
“It’s definitely not anywhere in next year’s schedule”
