August 18th, 2016

Timeline Television is pleased to announce the promotion of two of its engineers: Jon Ward to Technical Manager and Oliver Anderson to Lead Broadcast Engineer.

Jon Ward joined Timeline in 2013 as Lead Broadcast Engineer. His new role will see him working closely with BT Sport partner production teams to follow programmes through from conception to final delivery.


He commented: “My new position as Technical Manager will be a great opportunity to apply my engineering knowledge to a more production based role.  I’m especially keen to bring in new business from other production teams and to bring their programme-making to the BT Sport Production Hub and wider Olympic Park.”

Oliver Anderson also joined Timeline in 2013 as a Broadcast Engineer during the final build and testing phase of the BT Sport studios. Since then he has been an integral part of the Broadcast Engineering team and has taken the lead on a number of projects, including being part of the project management team for the building-wide upgrade for the UEFA Champions League in the summer of 2015.
