Statement: Lamenting the loss of 20 editorial jobs at online news site 10 Daily

Less than a week after we noted the closure of the Australian BuzzFeed newsroom, we are disappointed that 20 editorial jobs will be lost on Friday this week at the online news site, 10 Daily.

Josh Butler, 10 Daily Senior News Reporter said "there will be a lot of people left without jobs – news, lifestyle and entertainment journalists; editors; video editors; social staff. They’re all guns."

Erin Lyons, 10 Daily News Reporter said it was "another sad day for journalism."

10 Daily launched two years ago and has become a valuable source of online content.

The Melbourne Press Club joins with the media sector in support for journalism in the digital realm and opportunities for journalists.

We express our concern about the impact of Covid 19 in the media sector.

The Melbourne Press Club provides opportunities for journalists to be recognised for their work through the annual Quill Awards, as well as opportunities for young journalists with mentoring.
