Our annual listing of 25 media executives who made a difference this year and are shaping how 2018 will look.
Julie Ward, Executive producer, ZigZag TV
It’s been just over three years since Ward departed what was then Shine Australia to supercharge her own boutique production business ZigZag and turn it into more of a production force.
Ward is more in demand than ever as a TV executive producer and her success this year started with Nine’s massive Australian Ninja Warrior hit, which saw Ward working alongside her former colleagues at Endemol Shine. Next she worked on TEN’s ARIA Awards and then she was back at Nine where she produced their 2018 Upfront show. Ward also was EP of Sony Music’s ShareSpace initiative on YouTube.
