News.com.au launches news podcast hosted by Andrew Bucklow

News.com.au has launched a podcast called ‘I’ve Got News For You’, hosted by Andrew Bucklow.

The announcement:

News.com.au, Australia’s leading news website, has today launched a weekday news podcast, I’ve Got News For You.

Hosted by journalist Andrew ‘Bucky’ Bucklow, the 20-minute podcast dives into an issue or headline that has captured the nation’s attention. It will feature interviews with news.com.au journalists to help break down the big stories, as well as discussions with newsmakers and trendsetters.

Presented in a uniquely news.com.au way to reflect how the site talks to its audience every day, I’ve Got News For You is made for young adults on the move.

News.com.au editor-in-chief Lisa Muxworthy said: “What readers love about news.com.au is its ability to highlight what they really care about. We approach news from the audience’s perspective and can balance hard news with funny, inspiring and quirky stories adding dimension and intrigue. Our audience wants to connect and understand the world around them, and now we can deliver more of that via a new medium.

“Bucky’s radio and podcasting background, combined with his knowledge of what the news.com.au audience really cares about – and his sense of humour – makes him the perfect person to front I’ve Got News For You.”

Bucklow started his career as a commercial radio producer before joining news.com.au as a journalist in 2013. In 2019 he started hosting From The Newsroom, a news.com.au podcast that delivers the headlines of the day in less than five minutes, currently one of the top 20 podcasts in Australia*. Bucklow will continue to host From The Newsroom as well as reach new audiences with I’ve Got News For You.

I’ve Got News For You joins news.com.au’s growing network of on-demand audio which includes the podcasts From The Newsroom, Kinda Sorta Dating, I Swear I Never and its recently launched news channel in Amazon’s Alexa smart speaker.

News Corp Australia’s head of audio Del Fordham said: “I’ve Got News For You is the serious news podcast’s rogue second cousin. We’ve got an outstanding host in Bucky and we’re really pleased to be bringing something fresh to the daily news podcast market.”

I’ve Got News For You is produced by News Corp Australia’s on-demand audio division NewsCast. The podcast is available through the news.com.au app, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other podcatchers from today.

News Corp Australia has an extensive podcast portfolio produced by NewsCast across news, sport, lifestyle and the popular true crime genre. Recent podcast successes include Something To Talk About with Samantha Armytage, Extra Healthy-ish, The Matty Johns Podcast, Browny’s Podcast, The Mafia’s Web and I Catch Killers with Gary Jubelin.
