The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have launched twice-daily audio news bulletins accessible through smart speakers and podcast platforms.
The morning and afternoon bulletins will deliver the most up-to-date news headlines covering local, national and world politics, business, sport and entertainment in a three-minute news hit.
The 6am and 4pm bulletins News with The Sydney Morning Herald and News with The Age, will initially be presented by journalists Nathanael Cooper, Amelia Maguire, Sherryn Groch, Mex Cooper, Hanna Mills-Turbet and Nicole Precel, with plans to expand the frequency of the news updates over time.
Executive Editor of the SMH and The Age, Toby Maguire, says, “Launching these twice-daily news briefings is a natural step for the Herald and The Age, and allows us to showcase our agenda-setting reporting to a whole new audience. We’re always looking for ways to make the most of our journalism and this brings together the success we’ve had with our daily newsletters and the podcast team so far.”
The move further strengthens the mastheads’ commitment to audio and is produced by the same team that delivered the award-winning podcast investigation Pong Su, John Silvester’s real crime series Naked City and popular podcast Please Explain.
News with The Sydney Morning Herald and News with The Age are available on all major podcast apps and through Google Home and Amazon Alexa.
