The Guardian Australian edition launched

The Guardian Australia today


This morning, an exciting event took place on Australia’s somewhat barren media landscape: The Guardian news organisation launched its digital Australian edition.

Headed by editor-in-chief Katherine Viner (currently also The Guardian‘s deputy editor), the Guardian Australia team includes some impressive home-grown talents such as Lenore Taylor, David Marr and Katharine Murphy. Click here to read Viner’s welcome article in today’s Guardian.

With around 70% of the Australia’s newspapers controlled by Rupert Murdoch’s News Limited and most of the rest owned by Fairfax, Australia’s media desperately needs to diversify. The more voices Australians can access, the better.

So this Melbourne local welcomes you to Australia, Guardian. Please make yourself thoroughly at home.
