Media briefing: Our daily briefing

Your briefing email is one of the most popular parts of our website and each day we send a briefing email detailing what journalists are writing about in your favourite papers, on the front page of your favourite websites and on the various platforms you like to follow us on.

The briefing email is typically a mixture of top-tier news from across the media and what stories are making the news elsewhere. It also provides a news ticker that will keep you up to date with the stories we’re covering.

The emails are free to send and will be delivered to you throughout the day by 6.30am (GMT) on the day. But why not download the weekly briefing? For a weekly summary of what we write in every edition of the Guardian, visit our weekly newsletter, What we think.

They’re also available to send yourself through an emailer and we encourage you to do so. You’ll receive your daily briefing, as well as a regular roundup of our top writing.
