    Network 10 will launch a new national news bulletin on Monday, 29 January, hosted by Narelda Jacobs OAM. 10 News First: Afternoon will air each weekday at 3.30 pm on Channel 10 and 10 Play.

    The broadcast will also be available to watch on 10 News First’s YouTube channel and shared across multiple social platforms.

    The new multi-platform bulletin will add to 10’s current weekday news offering of 10 News First: Midday at 12pm and 10 News First at 5pm, along with a late night news bulletin coming soon.

    Martin White, VP broadcast news, said: “News is a fast-moving, 24-hour business and 10 is committed to delivering the latest information to viewers as often as possible.”

    Narelda Jacobs has been a journalist at Network 10 for over 20 years. She began her journalism career at 10 News First in Perth, where she presented the local news bulletin for over a decade, before moving to Sydney in 2020 to join Studio 10 and present News from Sydney. Narelda currently presents 10 News First: Midday.

    10’s new afternoon line up, commencing from January 29, is as follows:

    3.30pm – 4.00pm???10 News First: Afternoon?

    10’s version of Deal or No Deal – the game show where contestants must beat The Banker to win a huge cash prize – is also set to launch on January 29th. The reboot will be fronted by Gold Logie winner, Grant Denyer.

    Speaking to Mediaweek, Michelle Hartley, investment director at Half Dome, said Deal or No Deals‘ 6pm timeslot “may be problematic” in the long run. 

    “Whilst they are likely to have initial success in retaining their news viewers, it will be difficult to entice current Seven and Nine viewers to switch over from one quiz show to another rather than watch the major news service of the evening.”
