The launch of ten daily highlights Network Ten’s ongoing commitment to expanding its digital media business and giving Australians access to content whenever they want it, wherever they are and on whatever device they are using.

Optimised for the mobile experience, but accessible on all devices, ten daily offers smart, snackable and highly shareable video content stories. Its website, social channels and newsletters tap the growing demand for short-form content and create a new way for people to connect and engage with Network Ten’s content, on-air presenters and much more.
The new digital initiative is led by two of Australia’s most experienced and respected journalists – Executive Editor Lisa Wilkinson and Managing News Editor Sandra Sully – plus Managing Editor Melinda Cornford and Network Ten General Manager, Digital, Liz Baldwin.
Network Ten Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey, 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,” she said.
Lisa 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,” she said.
Sandra 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.”
