Top media people 2016: Craig Hutchison, Crocmedia

Our annual listing of 25 media executives who made a difference this year and are shaping how 2017 will look

Craig Hutchison, CEO, Crocmedia & Co-host The AFL Footy Show

Is Hutchy the new Eddie McGuire? asked the Herald Sun last week. It’s been a year to remember for the reporter-turned-media mogul after his Crocmedia business increased its AFL radio rights allocation just days before Hutchy was offered the role of co-hosting Nine’s AFL Footy Show. He will also keep his Monday Footy Classified hosting role as well as the essential listening Off The Bench radio show on Saturdays on SEN and network stations. Listen to his recent The Sounding Board podcast with Damian Barrett for the background to The Footy Show hiring. Visits to his New York apartment and Soho House could be few and far between during 2017.
