Samuel Hewlings "Sam" Chisholm AO (born 1939) is a New Zealand-born media executive who has been a significant figure in the Australian media. He ran Kerry Packer's Nine Network for a significant period during the 1980s before moving to the UK to work for Packer's rival Rupert Murdoch in rescuing the newly established BSkyB from financial problems after the merger of Sky and British Satellite Broadcasting. In 2005 he returned to Australia as acting chief executive of Packer's Nine Network after having received a double lung transplant.

On 25 November 2013 he was appointed an Honorary Officer of the Order of Australia. On 19 February 2014 he was awarded the King's College honours tie in Auckland, New Zealand for outstanding achievement in his selected career.

Benefactor

When leading Australian television personality Graham Kennedy became ill in his later years, an anonymous benefactor came forward and donated a substantial sum (reported to be A$150,000) for Kennedy's ongoing support and health care after Kerry Packer, for whom Kennedy had made millions of dollars throughout his career, had declined a plea for financial help. On 27 May 2005, two days after Kennedy's death his close friend and carer Noeline Brown confirmed that the benefactor was Sam Chisholm.
