The SMH and The Age launch twice daily news podcasts

Nine’s mastheads The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have launched a twice daily news podcast which will be available on smart speakers and podcast platforms.

Titled ‘News with The Sydney Morning Herald’ and ‘News with The Age’, the three-minute podcasts will be presented by journalists, covering areas such as local, national and world politics, business, sport and entertainment.

The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age’s executive editor, Tory Maguire, said: “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 news follows an uptake in news podcasts both in terms of number and listenership.

Earlier this month Nine, which owns both The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, launched a lunchtime news podcast.
