9Honey celebrates its fifth birthday with new columnists and content series


• The content series will cover topics as varied as consumer issues, product reviews to pets

Women’s lifestyle network 9Honey today marks its 5th birthday with an expansion of its editorial offering, by announcing new columnists and content series.

As 9Honey marks its milestone birthday, it will launch various content series covering topics as varied as consumer issues, product reviews to pets. New columnists have also been appointed including Miss Universe Australia 2020 Maria Thattil (pictured).

With more than 200,000 Instagram followers, Thattil is an influential voice in calling for social change in inclusion and equality.

“To write for a platform like 9Honey means my words are going to have reach and impact,” says Thattil. “I can’t wait to tell different Australian stories that maybe haven’t been told in the mainstream before, or experiences that people thought they couldn’t talk about.

“The biggest message I want to drive home is that we should celebrate – and have an appreciation – for differences, no matter what that looks like, because there is so much beauty, authenticity and power in acknowledging the things that make you different.” 

Dietician Susie Burrell will also join the team with a focus on wellness, nutrition and putting your health first, and 9Honey will also introduce hip-pocket hero ‘Judge Jo’ who will be road testing consumer goods to show what to buy and what to avoid, plus there will be a renewed focus on travel as Australia and the world opens up.

Nine digital editorial director and 9Honey’s founding editor Kerri Elstub says 9Honey has changed a lot during those five years.

“Our lifestyle brand has grown beyond our wildest expectations. We’ve become a true multi-platform voice for Australian women.  Whether it’s online, through our TV and video content or our social reach, 9Honey is everywhere you are.”

9Honey editor Shauna Anderson says: “We have just launched 9Honey Parenting which has been a standout success, and today we announce a range of new contributors whose voices, stories and opinions will further cement us as the place where Australian women come to be entertained, informed and supported as we all look to an exciting 2022.”
