Leading South African TV channel gets new sales manager

Johannesburg- South Africa (PANA) -- E.
TV, South Africa's third biggest TV channel, Tuesday announced the appointment of Rod Hull as General Manager of Commercial Airtime Sales.
The appointment takes place soon after the channel announced a number of recent successes including unprecedented audience growth across all lucrative audiences.
Hull brings with him a wealth of experience, the latter part of his career comprising 10 years worth of TV management in various disciplines including sales strategy, pricing policy, trade marketing, sponsorship, amongst others.
His most recent success, as manager of sales and special projects at SABC-TV, was the supervision and successful implementation of Landmark, an international system for airtime sales deal management.

Only within its third year of operation, the channel has also shown its sharp competitive edge by securing rights to some of most lucrative sports and cultural events.
These include key Bafana Bafana official internationals, the UEFA Champions League and Miss SA pageant, amongst others, ahead of the more established broadcasters.
