Bill Malone joined TV3 as Director of Programming last October and has responsibility for all programme commissioning, acquisitions and scheduling for the Virgin Media-owned television group. TV3 Group is Ireland’s leading independent broadcaster and Malone has certainly been busy having overseen a comprehensive rebrand of TV3, the younger skewing channel 3e, and the launch of new channel be3, in January.
TV3 is home to Gogglebox Ireland, Red Rock, Ireland AM, Pat Kenny Tonight, Champions League, 6 Nations, 3News Ireland and much more.
Prior to this Malone was Channel Controller RTE2 and a member of RTE’s TV Board from 2013 – 2016 and led a successful rebrand and repositioning of the channel. Malone was previously RTE’s Commissioning Editor for Entertainment, is an award winning and highly experienced programme maker and has produced some of Ireland’s top-rated shows, from ‘Prime Time Investigates’ to ‘The Late Late Show’.
With almost 20 years at the forefront of television in Ireland, Malone is seen as one of Ireland’s most experienced TV executives.
