    10 relaunches Late News bulletin after 10 years

    10 will relaunch its Late Night news bulletin on 29 April, led by 10 News First senior journalist Ursula Heger, 10 years after it axed the late bulletin.

    The new Late Night national news bulletin will stream live on 10 Play and 10 News First’s YouTube channel weeknights at 10pm AEST and air at 10:30pm on 10.

    The digital-first news bulletin aims to provide viewers comprehensive and contemporary coverage of all the biggest stories of the day, updating viewers on everything they need to know.

    “10 is synonymous with Late News, and this new bulletin is a key part of our strategy of taking our news into the streaming future,” Martin White, VP of broadcast news, said.

    “Ursula is a highly respected, top-class journo who’ll do a great job of continuing 10’s proud legacy of late-night news.”

    Heger joined the network in 2011 and has reported on major stories for the network including covering the war in Ukraine, the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, the Easter terror attack in Sri Lanka, the COVID pandemic, Black Summer bushfires, Royal visits to the Pacific, and Prime Ministerial visits to China, South Korea, Japan and the U.S.

    Heger said she was looking forward to stepping into the late night news presenter role. She said: “10’s Late News with Sandra Sully was an important part of many people’s evening ritual for so many years. She and the team brought you the news that mattered to you: from live coverage of September 11 to the financial crisis that impacted everyone’s lives.

    “I’m thoroughly looking forward to taking up the baton of 10’s new late news bulletin, as we bring you the latest breaking news, stories that matter, with analysis to help us all deal with an ever-changing world of new technology and shifting social norms. I will work to ensure 10’s Late News is important viewing to all of you. Giving you the facts, so you can make decisions for your lives.”

    Rashell Habib, head of digital news and strategy added: “The late news will play a major part in catering to the ever-growing audiences consuming 10 News First at all times of the day and night and on multiple platforms, whether in bed, on the couch or on a late shift. The late news will cater to everyone, wherever they are.”
