CentralNews.com.au is a news website based at the University of Technology, Sydney’s School of Journalism and staffed by students under the supervision of a professional editor.
Central News aims to break stories by combining the best of print, audio and video practice and by refreshing content daily with original material.
We will have access to exciting content from our partners at AAP, 2SER community radio, stories produced by journalism students and contributors.
We seek to find stories, which will reflect our city and the issues that matter to our communities.
Central News wants to hear from our readers about what’s going on in their communities, and will seek to engage with them about the issues that matter, their concerns about their neighbourhoods, what’s new in their area and what they love and hate about their city.
We will be proudly local but excitedly global in bringing wider news, issues and trends that our communities care about, are talking about or are yet to discover.
UTS journalism students can have hands-on experience in a dynamic digital newsroom working on centralnews.com.au - under the guidance of a professional editor.
Our aim is to give you the confidence and skills to be job-ready by creating great digital stories to add to your portfolio.
