Sky News has announced the launch of 2600, a new digital-first brand and content platform for political enthusiasts, keeping them in-the-know on the latest breaking news and events from the nation’s capital this election year.
The unique online political newsletter, sent at 6am each weekday, combines exclusive stories, breaking news and expert analysis for a rare insight into democracy in action from Parliament House.
Each weekday morning, registered users will receive an email brief from award-winning Sky News Political Editor David Speers detailing the day’s political agenda and what’s making news.
Leading Sky News political journalists David Speers, Kieran Gilbert, Laura Jayes, Annelise Nielsen and Tom Connell will regularly contribute tailored content to the new digital platform– a critical resource for anyone interested in the machinations of Australian policy and politics.
The digital platform will also feature exclusive podcasts including interviews with politicians, business leaders and national agenda-setters, live and on-demand analysis and interviews, videos, and the political week in pictures.
Sky News political editor David Speers said the platform is designed to reach new audiences through bespoke digital-first content.
He said: “This newsletter will lay out the day’s political agenda and dissect the major talking points on issues impacting all Australians.
“Politics affects our entire ecosystem – from business to housing, healthcare, education and defence.
“2600 is a must-read to get across the key details and decisions coming out of Canberra that impact our lives”.
