Welcome to your weekly Telstra Media wrap, where we bring you the five biggest news stories from the week, every Friday.
It is with extreme sadness that my team and I reported the intense, tragic siege in Sydney this week. The nation watched in horror as it unfolded, and I extend my condolences to the families of those who lost their lives. Sky News followed the entire terrifying event as it continued through the night, and covered the tributes paid by families at the shrine in Martin Place. All we can do in these situations is report the facts as sensitively as possible.
Around the rest of the network, and on a much lighter note, there was a meteor shower early Monday morning that brought star-gazers (and amateurs like myself) out into the night air to take in the amazing sight.
Early the next morning before work I hit up LifeStyle (as I regularly do now when I’m left flailing for a meal with little time or energy) and, as always, they came through with the goods. Their awesome breakfast recipes collection had me sorted. I noticed another recipe collection that I slotted into my bookmarks too: Christmas breakfast recipes. Time to impress the rellies.
