Nice new set in the News Corp headquarters in Holt St Sydney.


New for 2018

David Speers will claim recently retired Laurie Oakes’ mantle — launching a new marquee program, Speers, (4pm, Monday to Thursday) which will build to the premiere of Speers On Sunday (from January next year).

“I was always a huge fan of Laurie Oakes, no doubt about it,” Speers said.

“That Sunday morning interview that he did for many years was just a must-watch for me, certainly. I just loved his interviewing style.

“I’ve got my own style, everybody does, but it is still a really important point of the week when people are tuning in, not just the political class, but when I think a lot of Australians are catching up about what’s been the big issue of the week …just to watch someone put through their paces who has played a pivotal role in those issues.”

To The Point with Kristina Kennealy will move to Canberra.

Australian News Channel (ANC) and the WIN Network (WIN) today announced a program supply
agreement to broadcast Sky News content across WIN’s regional free-to-air television network on
a dedicated channel.

For the first time, more Australians will have the chance to watch select Sky News content spanning
news, sport, weather and public affairs programming on a new free-to-air television channel
“Sky News on WIN.”

“Sky News on WIN” will launch later this year on channel 83 across WIN’s regional network and
channel 53 across Northern NSW.

The new channel will broadcast into 29 markets across six states via the WIN Network including
regional areas of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia,
and state-wide across Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory.

The bespoke free-to-air news channel will feature a mix of LIVE and time-shifted Sky News program
highlights. Further announcements will be made regarding the program line-up on “Sky News on

In addition, Sky News will have access to Australia’s largest regional news operation with the ability
to broadcast local WIN News content on its premium news channels on Foxtel. WIN News will also
have access to Sky News national affairs content when relevant for its dedicated local news

“Sky News on WIN” will give viewers a taste of the premium suite of channels which will continue to
be available exclusively on national subscription television provider Foxtel.

Only on Foxtel will viewers be able to access five LIVE 24/7 Sky News and FOX SPORTS News
channels featuring award-winning news and national affairs programs, also available via its
streaming service Foxtel Now and to watch on the go, via tablets and smartphones, with the Foxtel

Angelos Frangopoulos, CEO Australian News Channel said: “The content supply agreement with
the WIN Network is an historic moment for our company providing, for the first time, the opportunity
to showcase the depth and breadth of the news, sports news, weather news and public affairs
content available on our premium Sky News channels on Foxtel to even more Australians. Sky News
will also deliver unique content to Australians in regional areas. We look forward to announcing that
in coming weeks.”

Andrew Lancaster, CEO WIN Network said: “WIN is proud of its position as Australia’s most prolific
producer of quality regional news content and this new agreement with ANC will allow WIN to
strengthen its commitment to informing regional Australians. As well as producing 16 dedicated
local news bulletins, WIN is now giving regional Australians the complete local, national and
international news, sport and current affairs stories across their day.”

The WIN Network is Australia’s largest regional commercial television network, broadcasting to
more of regional Australia than any other regional commercial network, with a potential audience
reach of more than eight million.

WIN is the only TV network in regional Australia producing 16 dedicated half-hour local news
bulletins each weekday. It is the largest producer of regional news bulletins in the country, with a
long-standing commitment to providing local content and a local voice for its viewers.

ANC is a wholly owned subsidiary of News Corp Australia and delivers more news and national
affairs to Australian audiences than any other network.

Sky News is Australia’s leading 24-hour multi-channel, multi-platform national news provider,
delivering news you can trust, opinions you can’t ignore.



Sky News Business will be renamed “Your Money” and is a JV with the Nine Network.

It will relaunch later this year on Foxtel and on Channel 95 metro and 85 regional.
