Network Ten has announced the appointment of Mel Cornford as managing editor of Ten Daily.

Ten Daily is Ten’s new standalone, mobile-optimised website that will be rich in short-form video content and offer premium and exclusive entertainment, lifestyle, opinion news and sport content. It is set to launch later this year.

Cornford joined Ten in 2016 as project lead on Ten Daily, and has played a key role in developing the new website.

Before she joined Ten, Cornford spent more than 10 years working in digital editorial production, content, commercial, strategy, and staff management for a number of industry organisations.

Most recently, Cornford was head of Yahoo7’s lifestyle, entertainment and travel division, leading the launch team for Yahoo7’s lifestyle and entertainment platform, Be.

She has also held senior editorial roles at News Corp Australia, including as online editor of body+soul and senior digital producer at Vogue Australia.

Cornford joins Lisa Wilkinson at Ten Daily, who was appointed executive editor in January.

Ten’s general manager of digital, Liz Baldwin, said: “Mel has been integral to the creation of Ten Daily, and I’m delighted to welcome her as the website’s managing editor.

“Mel’s impressive background leading digital editorial teams across many top online brands made her perfect for the role, and her editorial vision has been key to the development to Ten Daily.

“Together with Lisa as executive editor of Ten Daily, we have an impressive editorial team dedicated to bringing a fresh entertainment and news brand to Australians everywhere.”
