Cieron Cody is leaving his post at Screen Queensland to head to NITV as a commissioning editor.
Cody worked at SQ for five years, holding the position of manager and acting director of development, and VP of development and production.
“I’m beyond thrilled to be joining the NITV mob," Cody said. "As NITV has entered its tenth year, it has achieved exceptional momentum and success. There's much to love."
“As a Wiradjuri man, it’s with immense pride that I can go deeper into community to celebrate and support the revealing of distinct traditions and the evolving diversity of experience for Australia’s First Nations and Torres Strait Island people – people of rich insight, incredible talent and compelling voices.”
NITV Channel Manager Tanya Orman said Cody "is a wonderful addition to NITV and brings with him a strong track record in development and production across all genres. He will be joining a vibrant and committed team at NITV as we continue engage the nation in an in-depth conversation with Indigenous Australia.”
Cody will start at NITV February 20.
