Big gear, even bigger action: Mighty Machines TV show set for Channel 10

Posted 13 May 2019 in Announcement

Bauer Media Group is proud to announce an action-packed, ‘bigger is better’ television show
called Mighty Machines, showcasing the wildest machinery the world has to offer.

Hosted by transport and machinery journalists Cobey Bartels and Harrison Hunkin, Mighty
Machines airs weekly at 4.30pm AEST from June 1 on 10 Bold, and Prime TV for those over the ditch. Season 1 runs for 10 x 30-minute episodes.

Each episode features highly entertaining and engaging reviews, comparisons, adventures and profiles of the men, women and machinery that underpin the transport and machinery world.

From a first-of-its-kind Burnout Symphony, to racing hard-core off-road buggies through New
Zealand corn fields – even pulverising cars with 20-tonne excavators in a Dig This special- follow Cobey and Harrison’s exploits as they travel Australia and the world in search of the mightiest machines they can get their hands on.

Alongside the action Cobey and Harrison bring to the screen, viewers can expect to see a
number of high-octane celebrity appearances across the season on both two wheels and four!

Bauer Media Group General Manager Publishing and Executive Producer Terry King says the show is a milestone achievement for the company, demonstrating the publisher’s cross-platform content prowess. TV content will be replicated across Bauer Media Group’s print titles as well as its digital platforms.

Mighty Machines is proudly sponsored by popular Bauer Media titles; Deals on Wheels/TradeTrucks.com.au, Earthmovers & Excavators/TradeEarthmovers.com.au, Farms & Farm Machinery/TradeFarmMachinery.com.au, Owner//Driver, Australasian Bus & Coach (ABC) and Australasian Transport News (ATN).

“This is a really exciting project for us because it highlights our skillset across many different
platforms, from magazines, digital, social, and now to television,” King says.

“It’s the only show of its type in Australia and New Zealand it covers some of the nation’s largest employment sectors.

“The show is produced entirely in-house by our talented journalists and videographers, again highlighting our multi-platform ability as a publisher.”
