By Elliott Richardson in Media News on
  Barely a decade ago Australia was still coming to grips with the new technology of digital television. As the old analogue units were left on the curb for council pick up, new, digitally enabled flat screens were taking pride of place on entertainment units and walls around the country.   Australia’s traditional television stations now had more channels than they’d had before. And for a while, they didn’t really know what to do with them.   Now, into the 2020s and all of Australia’s stations run to a very similar format.

By Jonas Lopez in Media News on
The Australian’s Travel + Luxury lifestyle insert will move from a quarterly to bimonthly publication, starting January 2022.   News Corp Australia editorial director of premium food and travel Kerrie McCallum said people’s desires to travel again after the pandemic warranted an increase in content production from four issues to six.  “People are dreaming of the time that travel will be a reality again and are seeking inspiration and visual stimulation.
