Sports production company Whisper has announced the appointment of Pete Thomas as its new head of sport.
He joins Whisper from Noah Media Group, where he produced and directed a number of documentaries including Finding Jack Charlton.
Thomas has over 15 years of sports broadcast experience, including covering Premier League football, women’s football, UEFA Champions League, NFL and rugby.
Speaking about the appointment, Whisper’s managing director Mark Cole said: “Pete has an enviable list of production credits and a strong background in live sports, entertainment and documentary, so we’re really pleased he’s joined to lead our growing sports team. He knows how to create immersive films that audiences love and has produced stand-out content for ITV Sport, BBC, C4, FIFA and BT Sport. Pete has real experience of leading and developing teams, so will be a great addition and we look forward to welcoming him at the end of January.”
Pete Thomas added: “I can’t wait to meet everyone and get stuck into the creative process with the team at Whisper. Sports events provide us with unbeatable drama and the most memorable moments of entertainment on TV. Whisper knows just how to capture that and bring out the stories that need telling. Their sensational coverage of the Paralympics, the audiences they are bringing to WSL and the ambition they bring to their F1 coverage is inspiring and I’m excited to be working with such a talented group of people.”
