Person details

Michael loves to transfer ideas into programme reality: Bringing the right people together, striping things to the bones, digging for money, finding optimized production value and giving a good vision to the broadcaster. Michael began to climb the career ladder for some 30 years ago as an on-air reporter and editor in the world of radio and TV (WDR Cologne). He then became Head of Regional TV and Radio for NDR (North German Radio and Television) where he later on became Managing Director of Radio and Television.

After gaining numerous experience, Michael changed from public to private broadcasting sector as Managing Director (radio NRW). This very position was followed by a dive into the world of advertisement & commercials where he was in charge as CEO for an international advertising company (EURO RSCG) for almost 5 years. Eventually in 1997, Michael finally founded his own TV production companies TV Plus and TV21.

As executive producer he brought out game shows, talk shows, infotainment programmes as well as documentaries since the beginning of the foundation of his companies. Among other he has been the executive producer for over 5 years of SABINE CHRISTIANSEN (ARD German TV), the No1 political talk show in Germany, and of CNBC’s „GLOBAL PLAYERS“.
