The Life&Style sections from Fairfax Media’s metropolitan mastheads have been consolidated under the banner of female-focused digital brand, Daily Life.
A redesigned Daily Life was launched today and will take the place of Life&Style in the print and online properties of The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Canberra Times, Brisbane Times and news site WAToday.
Daily Life will also be more closely aligned to Sunday Life magazine, which is published in the Sun-Herald and The Sunday Age.
Fairfax’s head of entertainment and lifestyle, Monique Farmer, said Daily Life had been strengthened through the integration of Life&Style content that reduced duplication of journalism for fashion, beauty and home.
Daily Life has bolstered its line-up of columnists as part of its relaunch with Celeste Barber, Jane Caro, Tracey Spicer, Tara Moss and Ben Pobjie coming on board.
They join existing columnists Clementine Ford, Ruby Hamad, Kasey Edwards, Jenna Price, Clem Bastow, Celeste Liddle and Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen.
“The changes will grow Daily Life’s audience even further as part of the respective mastheads,” Ms Farmer said.
Fairfax fashion editor Jenna Clarke will lead the coverage from Sydney, supported by Melissa Singer reporting from Melbourne
Sunday Life magazine’s beauty director Stephanie Darling joins Daily Life to expand its beauty offering.
