Who is Clancymedia
He is the person who will bring your media production projects to life.
In a challenging, ever-changing media environment multi-skilling is king.
With an extensive grounding in broadcast journalism, complemented by years of experience in government & corporate communications, and topped off with the skills and connections gleaned from major events around the world, that’s what you’ll find right here.
Still, all the tech skills and online savvy in the world mean little without content and it’s the quality of your content, as well as how you deliver it, that wins an audience’s attention and respect.
But let’s go back in time to where this media involvement first began…
That was in community radio before a Journalism cadetship with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) in the early 1990s, where Rob specialised in sport reporting for Television and Radio, covering all major events in Melbourne, Australia (the sporting capital of the world), before branching out into Public Relations, specifically in the fields of environment, conservation and renewable energy.
During this time Rob also wrote two editions of the best-selling “Australian Sports Quiz” for Penguin Books.
Then the lure of world-class sport drew him back, via the Olympic movement, leading to an on-going role with Olympic Broadcasting Services, which took him to Beijing, Vancouver, Singapore, Innsbruck and London, as a Commentator/Producer/Reporter.
More recently the focus has been closer to home, with exciting producing, writing and voice work for the Australian Tennis Open, AFL.com.au and the National Basketball League, among others, as well as regularly being part of the Australian host broadcasters’ teams covering Olympic & Commonwealth Games.
Rob Clancy is also a father of two, living in Melbourne and trying to stay active; still chasing the perfect day’s Cricket, after nearly 40 seasons of playing. As a sportsman, he was keen/stupid enough to take up competitive football (Aussie Rules) at the age of 47, despite giving it away in the under-16s.
If nothing else, that tells you Rob Clancy is committed, determined and up for a challenge!
