Angela has been working in the area of television research and programming for over a decade. She started her career in audience research and ratings analysis before quickly moving in to programming various channels across the Australian Subscription TV platform, FOXTEL. Angela has worked across ten channel brands and launched new channels in her time at Foxtel, where she is currently immersing herself in her new role as Head of Programming – Drama, where her main channels are the exclusive home of all HBO and FX content in Australia.
