Home / News / HMMG is excited to announce Mieke Buchan as the new host of BigPond Movies

Mieke Buchan adds BigPond Movies to her existing role as a weekly panelist on BigPond’s SportsFan ClubHouse, where she gives her unique take on every footy code, tennis tussle, golf game, and swimmer’s stroke. BigPond Movies and SportsFan ClubHouse are produced by Chief Entertainment.

Mieke is back doing one of the two things she loves most – talking films (the other being talking sport)! Mieke will be busy doing feature interviews, film previews and red carpet coverage for all of Australia’s most coveted film events. This new role will also see her taking a peak at all of the goodies the Telstra THANK YOU program offers its customers by filming backstage at major concerts, interviewing touring musicians, getting amongst it at sporting events, and much more.

The Telstra THANK YOU program has been taken up by over 1 million members to date who get the chance to experience backstage tours, attend exclusive concerts and meet and greet with the stars.

Mieke’s first feature interview was earlier this week with Tom Hiddleston (Thor’s bad guy brother Loki) and lots more exciting interviews and event coverage are booked in the calendar for the rest of the year.

In her new role with BigPond Movies and the Telstra THANK YOU program, Mieke draws on over 15 years of entertainment reporting experience. In Australia she hosted Entertainment Extra for Fox8 where she interviewed everyone from Anthony Hopkins to Ashton Kutcher. During her 7 years in the USA Mieke hosted over 250 episodes of her film review show Previews (STC Films) and filmed countless film-focused TV specials (which included a day on the ranch with Kevin Costner).

Given Mieke called Chris Hemsworth “the world’s first tradie super-hero”, and Russel Brand bit her shoulder after their particularly animated interview.. BigPond Movies is bound to be good viewing.
