Managing director of News.com.au Julian Delany said: “As big news breaks Australians turn toNews.com.au. We lead in digital news in this country, delivering news to consumers as it happens and covering the conversations related to those events as they unfold.
“Along with the highest unique audience, we have the highest page views, page views per person and total time per person of all news websites, the levels of engagement with our content demonstrating the strong relationship we have with our readers.
“In August, Australians turned to News.com.au for round-the-clock coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games; the tragic earthquake that struck central Italy; and the US presidential election. We were their first choice for breaking news in Australia as they turned to us for the latest developments on why the ABS Census website couldn’t be reached and then what to do next.
“News.com.au is the trusted choice for over 6 million Australians and this result is a testament to the exceptional team we have here,” Delany said.
