Nine moves into daily news podcasting with 9News Lunch Podcast
Nine is calling on the combined powers of its newsrooms to launch a weekday podcast, 9News Lunch Podcast.
The 10-minute national news bulletin will draw on the resources of 2GB, 3AW, 4BC and 6PR, and be presented by 2GB’s Amie Meehan and Natalie Peters, Nine Radio’s Sydney news director.
Nine said the bite-sized bulletins will be the perfect lunchtime snack for busy people who want the latest local, national and international news on the run.
Newly recruited head of digital audio at Nine, Hayley Bourne, noted the power and scale of Nine to bring this project together.
“The 9News Lunch Podcast does exactly what it says on the tin – a comprehensive snapshot of what’s unfolded in news across the morning,” she said.
“This is a great example of the power of Australia’s biggest media company, collaborating internally to create on-demand, credible content for our listeners, at pace.”
The podcast is sponsored by Specsavers.
