Hi, I'm Daan! One of the Presentation Schedulers within a team of Channel Operations which is responsible for the channels in the UK & Ireland, New Zealand and Australia.
You can think of us schedulers as the people who translate the vision of programmers, media planners and creatives into exactly 24 hours of television per day. We set up TV continuity, graphics, voice-overs, promos, commercials, sponsorship and of course the shows themselves in a way that makes sense for the viewer. By making smart choices in our continuity we can (usually) make shows start around their desired times.
We also check every broadcast day for problems and bring colleagues together to make sure that's all taken care of by the end of the day: the moment we deliver our playlists to Playout.
We also come together as a team around live shows, special events, stunts and other important moments to help make fun television happen!
I'm a senior, which means I've been here for a little while and I help out with projects and trainings. I'm also sometimes on-call, so I stay available after office hours just in case an issue comes up or something happens.
Outside of work I have lots of fun in local radio, tinkering with computers and audio, and let's be honest: sleeping is a very valid passion ^.^
