The new digital initiative is led by Executive Editor Lisa Wilkinson and Managing News Editor Sandra Sully with Managing Editor Melinda Cornford and Network Ten General Manager, Digital, Liz Baldwin.
Contributors include Lisa Wilkinson, Sandra Sully, Waleed Aly, Joe Hildebrand, Hugh Riminton, Sarah Harris, Angela Bishop and Matt Burke.
TEN Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “The heart of our business is to create compelling, premium content that connects with people across all screens.
“Ten has always differentiated itself by being brighter, younger and louder than our competitors – an ethos clearly demonstrated with ten daily.
“ten daily is the ideal platform to bring Australians brand-safe, family-friendly entertainment in an entirely new and exciting way. At the same time, it fits our strategy of building Network Ten’s audiences on different platforms,” she said.
Lisa Wilkinson said: “We are delighted to be able to present ten daily to Australia. It is very exciting to be able to expand Network Ten further into the digital space, complementing our existing home of catch-up viewing and streaming, tenplay, with smart, snackable and shareable news.
“Focusing on entertainment, lifestyle, food, opinion and sport content, ten daily provides audiences with a new and engaging way to connect with Ten programs, talent and plenty more.
“With so much fantastic Ten content already available and even more brilliant, bespoke content to come, I am certain ten daily will become a must-visit daily digital destination,” she said.
Sandra Sully said: “We have a dedicated team of professional journalists across the country, who now have another platform to engage with viewers and showcase their skills, insights, and expertise with immediacy and impact.
“It’s real news in real time. Relevant issues, views and debate – I can’t wait.”
Meanwhile Nine has announced former editor-in-chief of Mamamia Jamila Rizvi as Editor-at-Large of its female-skewing subscription site Future Women.
Nine’s Director of Digital Content, Helen McCabe, said, “Jamila is a young leader in this field. She is very knowledgeable about the space and has been a passionate advocate both for equality and for women.
“From her early days in politics to her editorship of Mamamia and her recent books, there is probably no one more obvious to be involved in Future Women.
“She will be hosting our regular podcast FW Weekly and be involved in speaking and curating our events in Melbourne where she is based. One of FW’s verticals is leadership and equality, and this is a space Jamila knows really well. I expect her to own that space in conjunction with Emily Brooks, our editor.”
Future Women, aimed at professional women and female entrepreneurs, launches in coming months, while an FW Academy will launch towards the end of 2018.
