Gaven has had extensive experience as a news executive, news editor, reporter and producer. He spent almost a decade in international news, first at CNN in London as an online and television reporter and as a producer and senior news editor.
He moved to the Middle East in 2005 and spent three years in Doha setting up the Al Jazeera English rolling news channel, as Head of Planning, co-ordinating the global coverage across four broadcast centres, more than 20 bureaus and many travelling newsgathering teams.
In 2008 Gaven returned to Australia and took up the National Editor position for ABC News Online. He was quickly elevated to a newly created Head of Continuous News role and oversaw breaking news content for all platforms, before moving into his current role as Head of Content for ABC News.
