Ticker’s growth leads to new studio complex at Ticker Park

Ticker News has announced it is moving to a new studio complex in Port Melbourne.

The announcement:

Ticker NEWS is on the move. With the news network now broadcasting 17 hours a day around the world, it’s time to expand.

Just over a year after moving into Burnley St Richmond, the company has grown rapidly, leading to the requirement for much more space to grow.

Ticker is moving to the top level suite of the former General Motors Holden headquarters in Fishermans Bend in Port Melbourne, at 191 Salmon Street.

The new complex will house a large newsroom, two purpose built TV studios for news and content production, as well as admin and sales offices.

Ticker CEO and Founder Ahron Young says: “A year ago we never imagined we’d need more space so quickly. But our growth during the pandemic to become a global news network means we have to move. We have rebuilt our Richmond studios four times in a year, shifting glass and studios to try and make it work. In the end, our growth outpaced our trips to Bunnings!”

The property is owned and managed by Altis Property Partners. Ticker’s live feed will be displayed on the huge LED screen at the main entrance.

Neva Courts, Director Melbourne Real Estate at Altis Property Partners says: “We’re delighted to secure Ticker News as a new tenant at 191 Port Melbourne. Through a $15 million refurbishment, we have re-imagined 191 Port Melbourne as a workplace that empowers tenants to be creative and innovative.

“Ticker’s commitment to the area further cements Port Melbourne and Fishermans Bend as one of Australia’s leading precincts for technology and innovation.”

Adjacent to the $1 billion redevelopment of the former General Motors Holden production site on Salmon Street, 191 Port Melbourne has re-emerged after a multi-million-dollar refurbishment as a dynamic, modern and vibrant workplace.

Ticker’s new offices will include a purpose build studio space for news and external productions.

Ticker COO Jed Bertalli says: “The key to Ticker’s success is our flexibility to work with commercial partners. We have a huge number of Ticker Original shows we produce daily, as well as offering our studios to external productions. This will help grow that part of the business too and bring a new level of professional services what we do.”

“We can’t wait to bring in our clients, it’s going to be fantastic,” Jed says. Ticker has signed a four year lease at the property.

Ticker CEO and Founder Ahron Young says: “As soon as we saw this property it clicked straight away. It’s almost purpose build for Ticker, on the doorstep of the CBD, and 15 minutes to the airport. It’s been a quick process to get set up and we’re grateful to Neva and the team at Altis for making it happen.“

“We’ve coined it Ticker Park!”

Ticker will begin broadcasting from the new facility from the first week of June.
