EXCLUSIVE: FOX Sports News channel is relocating from Macquarie Park to Holt Street in Surry Hills.
The studios at News Corp headquarters were formerly used for the Your Money channel which ceased broadcasting last month.
SKY News CEO Paul Whitaker said, “As we become increasingly aligned to the News Corp Australia business, SKY News, as a key strategic part of News Corp Australia, is continuing to integrate across the broader business for the benefit of both organisations.
“With this in mind, I am pleased to confirm that FOX Sports News will relocate from Macquarie Park to our News Corp business in Holt Street, Surry Hills from August.
“Moving to Holt Street will enable the dedicated 24-hour sports news channel, we produce on behalf of FOX Sports, to take advantage of the prominently positioned state-of-the-art, world-class studio facility that was built for Your Money last year.
“Being co-located within the News Corp Sydney headquarters will enable greater collaboration and cross-fertilisation between News Corp’s publishing sports teams and FOX Sports News, while building on the channel’s success as the main provider of breaking sports news video content for the News Corp mastheads including The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun and The Courier-Mail, www.news.com.au and www.foxsports.com.au.
“The move also provides the opportunity to further build audience reach for the channel by improving our content and live broadcast capabilities as we continue to deliver an exceptional news service for Australian sports fans.”
