Hamish MacDonald is no stranger to the front line, he is the Ten network Senior Foreign Correspondent and Presenter of Ten Late news.  It’s also safe to say there is no ‘regular’ day for Hamish.  He could be jetting off to report from one of the world’s most dangerous hot spots or putting on his suit for a corporate event or awards night.

The team at Ovations have watched the career of Hamish McDonald with great interest, viewing him as a brilliant young talent.  Winning The British Royal Television Society Young Journalist of the year while working for the UK’s Channel 4 news was an early career highlight.  Closer to home Hamish was nominated for a prestigious Walkley award for his coverage of the devastating Japanese Tsunami.  He was also a finalist for the Graham Kennedy Awards for the Most Outstanding Talent at the Logies.  Very few commercial journalists are recognised at the Quills Australian Journalist of the year awards but in the same 12 month block as the Walkleys and Logies Hamish earned a well-deserved nomination.

Hamish McDonald is a serious journalist who has been at the frontline of war in Afghanistan and riots in Australia.  Yet he was equally at home on Network Tens The Project as a co-host, happy to lend his view in a lighter news format.  His personality and professionalism is evident in every capacity both in the media and corporate events.

If you are looking for a media personality to MC your event or gala dinner, host a panel or conduct an interview Hamish is a natural in all of these areas.  Corporate clients enjoy Hamish’s professional outlook and the fresh energy he brings to the world of conferences and events.   The team at Ovations enjoy bringing clients a wide range of talent and options to meet their event brief and Hamish is proving to be a popular network name.
