Michael McLaren

Michael is joined by Dr Vincent O’Donnell, Media Analyst & researcher, on the anniversary of Reg Grundy’s first television production airing on Australian TV.

 

Wheel of Fortune was first broadcast on the Nine Network in 1959 after having been developed by Grundy as a radio game show.

 

Reginald Roy Grundy AC, OBE (4 August 1923 – 6 May 2016) was Australia’s media mogul, best known for his numerous television productions including Blankety Blanks, Match Game & Wheel of Fortune before later diversifying into soap operas and serials including Prisoner, The Young Doctors, Sons and Daughters and Neighbours.
