ten daily Kicks Big Goal with New Sport Editor
Network Ten’s news site ten daily has announced the appointment of Walkley Award-winning journalist, Anthony Sharwood as Sports Editor.
Managing editor of ten daily, Mel Cornford said: “I’m super excited Ant is joining the ten daily team. His impressive credentials in sports journalism, coupled with his sharp, witty editorial style and humour, suits ten daily to a tee. Ant’s appointment puts us in a strong position to build ten daily’s sports offering. We have big ambitions for ten daily and its role in supporting Network Ten’s overall sports coverage. I’m thrilled to have Ant on board to lead this charge.”
Anthony said: “I’m 110 percent thrilled. ten daily is doing for digital media what The Project did for TV. It’s smart, inquisitive and a little irreverent. I can’t wait to rip in from the Members’ End and make sport a larger part of the mix. I’m also looking forward to working alongside some ridiculously talented people, most of whom I have never met but have idolised from afar. I will do my very best not to faint if I see Sandra Sully or Matt White in the lunch room, but I can’t make any guarantees.”
Anthony was previously sports editor of HuffPostAustralia and news.com.au. He joins ten daily from first-person sports storytelling platform, PlayersVoice where he was a senior editor. Ant started his career as a freelancer before moving to The Canberra Times in the early 2000s. He then worked as a feature writer in magazines for several years. Ant has covered a Super Bowl and three Olympic Games, most recently Rio where he was personally welcomed to the Olympic City by the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism after studying a Brazilian Portuguese language course beforehand to help his reporting.

Lawrence joins ten daily from the ABC where he spent over seven years in social-led roles, most recently as a Social Media Producer. With a background in journalism he’s also worked at 2UE and Southern Cross Austereo.
Mel continued: “We are building something unique at ten daily. It’s been great seeing audiences positively engaging with our fresh editorial take and style. Now with Ant, Natasha and Lawrence joining our stellar team of journalists and contributors, we’re in an exciting position to engage new digital audiences through our content while continuing to put our ten daily twist on things.”
