The New Daily’s ‘Newsmakers of the Year’

The year is nearly over – and well, what a year 2022 has been.

Here at The New Daily there have been hundreds of big stories over the year and we have written about literally thousands of people, but some of the same names do keep cropping up.

Politics, entertainment, sport, health, culture; there have been plenty of big stories that got people talking and we’ve covered them all.

We had a federal election, we wrestled with the aftermath of COVID, we turned to our entertainers for comfort and they brought their own share of controversy and chaos.

But who were the true newsmakers in the Australian landscape?

The disrupters, the movers and shakers, the people who made us angry, the people who made us cry, the people who made us proud.

Narrowing the list hasn’t been easy – so now we are turning to the readers who have been with us throughout the news cycle of this turbulent year.

Whether you love them or loathe them, who got you talking?

Leave your comment and have your say on our list of newsmakers for 2022.
