He has already stamped a significant footprint on the broadcasting industry in Australia, and we’re delighted to be able to enhance our team with his expertise.”

Shtein added: “The media landscape is changing dramatically, from a commercial, technological and viewer perspective. With the rise in OTT TV and the move into mainstream broadcasting of Facebook, Apple, Amazon and DAZN, now is the perfect time to be joining such an ambitious, dynamic and relevant organisation as Gravity Media.”
