Free-to-air broadcaster Network Ten has officially launched Ten Daily, its new website that brings Australians the latest and best in news, entertainment, lifestyle, food, opinion, and sport content.
The standalone, mobile-optimised website has a strong focus on short-form video, drawing on the resources of Ten.
The site is also the home of exclusive content from Network Ten’s on-air talent and the Ten Daily editorial team.
Contributors to Ten Daily include Lisa Wilkinson, Sandra Sully, Waleed Aly, Joe Hildebrand, Hugh Riminton, Sarah Harris, Angela Bishop, and Matt Burke.
Optimised for the mobile experience, but accessible on all devices, Ten Daily offers snackable and shareable video content stories.
The new digital initiative is led by Wilkinson and Sully, along with Ten Daily managing editor Melinda Cornford and Ten’s general manager of digital, Liz Baldwin.
Beverley McGarvey, chief content officer at Ten, 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.
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.”
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.”
